    Hey first time poster I was looking for a solution to my problem and found your site, I've read so much about connecting the AP in AP client mode ,but can't seem to get it to work. My currnet network Topology is

    internet --> W200G -----> WAP54G (AP mode)

    what I want to do is

    internet --> W200G -----> WAP54G (AP mode) <---- WAP54G (AP client mode) <--- wired laptop

    Every where I read it seems to be an easy thing to do , just connect the WAP54G do site survey and connect.... I've changed the the IP address of the Client AP to and now that I have the laptop connected to it , its the only thing I can ping , I cannot ping the Gatway or the AP connected to it.

    am I missing something? is there some kind of trick to get it working properly? I've tried turning off all security but it still won't work :frown:

    ok the laptop amazingly got an IP using DHCP but it won't ping to the gateway, and it has the DNS of the WAN for some reason . Also I cannot connect to the AP using my other laptop if teh Client AP is on , even when SSID is off . I'm finding this too hard but I want to get it to work
