draytek access point

Hi,

I have a draytek AP-800 Wireless Access Point connected to router. The router has a static IP address. Is it possible to add a static ip address to the draytek  and act as an access point

Thanks

there should be no reason why you cannot allocate a static IP address to the Draytrek Access Point.

See Page 20 of the above guide, will show you how to set a static IP address.

(or page 29/94 according to Adobe Reader!)

The router has up address 86.x.x.222 and the draytek has address 86.x.x.218. How can I setup Nat? Please advise.

I trust you want to setup nat on the main isp router to pass through a public wan to a AP 800.
You havent said what model of draytek router you have, chances are (if you rusing a 2820)  you can browse to the routers internal IP then on the left hand side you should have nat, from this go to DMZ host, and bing enter the public address and the local ip of the box.

Unless the ap800 MUSt have a public wan you would be better setting it on a vlan to isolate from the network, becuase as soon as it has a public address it will be visable from the internet.

Let me know the model number of the draytek and I can help you a little better.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. The router is Cisco provided by isp. They have supplied 5 static up address. Using the draytek I want to create a wireless network. Bit confused how to configure the draytek.

The ap 800 is the wrong product as its an access point not a router. You need another router to make use of the public ips then create a lan network using a seperate subnet behind the public ips. Then put the ap800 on this network.
Any draytek product with a ethernet wan would do the job, take a look at -

we use the 2820 and its great!.

You might get lucky on ebay and be able to purchase an old cable router (any make would work)

Then setup the new router with a private ip range (just use the default) 192.168.1.0 /24
set the routers WAN to use one of the private IPS from ths cisco.
Setup the ap800 lan1 to use an in the range (this defaults to the same above subnet) 192.168.1.2 i think
