  1. Laptop can't ping router...

    Hi All

    Can someone help with this layout?



    ______________

    ________|__________
    | Wired Router |
    } 192.168.123.254 |

    } 192.168.123.10 |
    | |
    | Gateway= |
    | 192.168.123.4 |
    -------------------

    The laptop cannot ping the router, only the access point.

    It doesn't matter if the laptop's gateway address is set to
    the routers, 192.168.123.254

    Thanks in advance!

    If you've disabled DHCP on the laptop, you have to specify an actual gateway
    device address - ie: your router's LAN address - if you ever want your static
    addressing scheme to work.

    Try this: set the laptop to use DHCP - and don't specify a gateway address.
    Let the DHCP server on your LAN (ie: the router) answer your laptop's request
    for ip address/dns server addresses/etc.

    If that works, you don't have any electrical/functional problems with the
    network; you have a misconfigured LAN client...
