    With the DWL-2700 the default IP address of the unit is  Connect the access point to the network and set a computers IP to be in that same range.  Go into the config by going to  Make sure "PtP Bridge" is selected under the advanced tab.  Enter the Mac address of the DSA 3200 under the #1 portion of the config.  The mac address can be found underneath that wireless router.  Under the Home Tab hit Lan on the left hand side change the IP address to the same config as the dsa.  Let's say the dsa is make sure that you assign and ip to the DWL that's on the same portion of the IP chain such as and make sure no other device has that IP adddress.  Default gateway will be "".  Follow similar steps fot the dwl 3200.
