Hi,

have you set bridging mode on both the router and the antenna?

NO...bridging mode is  not set.
awww... well bridging mode allows your wireless router to talk to the antenna and pass information back and forth!

so that will need enabling (make sure that you have same security set for both antenna and wireless router!

The router and the antena are physically wired , but the PC communicates with the antena wirelessly.
aww i see....

are they both on the same subnet?

yes..
and... Operation Mode is Access Point?

Author

Commented:
There's no option called operation mode on the antena its given a static ip and also the router
System Configuration > System Properties
You can set the device name and select the operational mode????

As per the manual at http://www.airlive.com/products/WH-5400CPE/AirLive_WH-5400CPE_Manual.pdf

So the airlive unit is connected to the netgear on one of its LAN ports... is the indicator for that LAN port lit up on the front of the netgear?

Did you already mount the airlive outside and you're using the optional 25meter cable made/sold by airlive, or are you still trying to get it setup and working (ergo inside) just using a short patch cable and the wallwart power supply connected directly instead of PoE with the injector?

If you cable directly into one of the netgear's LAN ports with your PC are you able to ping 192.168.1.1 like that?
What is the IP of the PC's wireless card, btw?

My pc can ping the router ie. the gateway 192.168.1.1
The ip of PC's wirelss card is 192.168.1.28/24

when i connect my pc wired to the router which is also conected with the antena i cant ping the antena
ie192.168.1.20 but the antena can be pinged wirelessly using the wireless card.
