Small router turned access point with DHCP off
Posted on 2008-10-06
Im the IT admin for a school and I have a number of cisco aironet 1130ag's but, of course, there are some dead spots so ive put in some smaller linksys WRT54G2 routers to fill the gaps. now, i have them all set up as access points, with the same security settings and SSID and everything is working beautifully except for one small thing. For some reason, once I disable DHCP on the WRT54G2, I cant access them again to make changes to the configuration. The Cisco routers let me login and do everything just fine. Ive seen somewhere online that i might have to give my machine a temporary static ip and subnet to get into the router I need.
I could really use some help! right now, if I want to make tweaks to an access point, Id have to reset the thing which is just too annoying.
