hello !

I have now got 2 wireless networking points.

one netgear , and one cisco air 350. what i want to do is to make these two talk to each other...

have looked into the snmp manager to the netgear. where i have these options :

access point
access point client <mac address>

Wireless bridge
point to point <mac address>
point to multipoint


i do not get into the cisco AP, since i do not have a serial cable connecting to it yet. but hopefully someone can give me a guide

Why do you want them to talk to each other?  To extend range from a wired Internet access point?

i was going to make a IP zone through our house and my brother's. and for that, i need 2 access points, which i can put relative high to get the best speed.

i just do not know how to set them up to comunicate with each other

Are you trying to bridge the two houses together using the access points? AP's don't talk to each other, they talk to clients. Wireless BRIDGES connect two wired networks together.

i got it to work sort of....
the cisco thingie has a bridge internally i think, also the netgear after i installed the new firmware.

they talk together, altho, i cannot ping the cisco from my wired network, i can ping it from the wireless IF i am connected to it, and or if i am connected to the other AP.

i know they both talk, since i can get on the internet with the cisco access point, (i see it in the MAC add)

but when i connect the cisco AP to a normal computer with a 3com NIC i get no ping reply. and or anything..
