    Should a WAP54g v1.0 (firmware version 2.07) be able to share an already routed NTL cable broadband signal. The signal comes from a wired router to the access point via ethernet cable. How come my connected wireless clients cannot ping the WAN ip of the wired router only the lan ip. my wired clients have no problems accessing the internet, and my wireless clients can even connect to local shared network files.

    is my wap 54g knackered or is it incompatable with an ntl cable modem signal.

    well, your thinking along the right lines... the wap54 should be doing all the things you want it to, you don't need another router.

    this might sound a bit daft, but you have checked the cable you are using to connect to the access point??

    can you ping the wanIP of the router from a wired, working PC? it may be that your router is set to not respond to pings on it's wan interface as a security feature!

    It's also worth checking that both the wireless client and the access point have the right default gateway set, it's not beyond impossible that one or other of these has slipped past you!

    I'd check the cable first and try again, these AP's don't go *that* wrong that often!
