Looking for some assistance on a wireless setup shown below:
Basically I'm looking to bridge an incoming ISP to another location as shown (minus the router on the left). I've got the two EnGenius antennas communicating, the left antenna (from my pic) I have configured as an access point and the right I have configured as a client bridge. Neither have DHCP enabled. When I connect to the right antenna directly with a laptop (wired), I can get an internet connection. But when I connect a router to the client bridge, it doesn't assign any IP addresses (router has DHCP enabled). Which I figure is a DHCP problem. So my thought is to enable DHCP on the access point and try that. Would very much appreciate any suggestions/feedback. Let me know if there are any questions or if I need to provide additional info. Thanks in advance.
Your wireless router's DHCP allpies to the LAN and WLAN side, not the WAN (internet) side. Set your WAN side to same subnet as teh upstream address range.
Better yet, use your wireless router as a non-routing AP by not connecting anything to its WAN port and disabling the DHCP.
Thanks for the response. I actually got this to work. I kept the left antenna as an access point and set the right antenna to "client router" mode. Once I plugged the right antenna into another router, everything was communicating and assigning IPs as necessary. Have some good transfer speeds too.
