I'm new here. I spent a lot of time with your search engine but I didn't find any answer to the problem I'm going to present. However, if you discover that my topic actually does duplicate another thread, please, refer me to the right place and don't scold me
I'm testing the ap-client mode in AirLive Air3g. The situation looks as follows:
ISP ---- D-LINK DIR-300 (Router Wi-Fi) -----> AirLive AIR3g (AP-client) ----->laptop
DHCP: ON (192.168.0.100 - 192.168.0.150)
SUBNET MASK: 255.255.255.0
DHCP: ON (192.168.1.100-192.168.1.150)
SUBNET MASK: 255.255.0.0
Laptop: automatic configuration
When the connection between ap client and router is made, AP-Client connects to DIR-300 (which I can see in the log) but does not receive an IP address. However, DIR-300 can see my laptop and assigns an IP address to my laptop. Consequently, my laptop has a 192.168.0.x address and sees all computers that are in the WAN network. The AP-client device disappears (for its IP is in a different subnet) and the connection to the internet from the laptop is really slow. To make sure that Wi-Fi isn't playing tricks on me, I disabled the Wi-Fi card and used only ethernet connection between the laptop and the AIR3g. Does anyone have an idea what's wrong and how to fix it?
If I'm not mistaken, ap-client mode shouldn't bridge WAN and LAN, should it? I experimented with the IP address of the AIR3g. I changed the address to 10.10.0.1 and DHCP to 10.10.0.2 - 10.10.0.50. Still, my laptop "reads" the configuration from DIR-300 and gets and IP address from there. If I set-up a static IP on my laptop (192.168.1.x), I can see the AP-CLIENT device but there's no connection to the internet.
Thank you in advance for helping me!
