  1. Need some help getting my wirelss to connect to the internet

    I'm trying to get my AirLink Wirelss (AR325W) to work. I'm still having
    problems establishing an internet connection. Although I can connect to my
    wireless network it's about all I can do. My main purpose is to keep this
    wireless off my network outside my firewall. You would think taking a cable
    and plugging it into the 10/100 5-port switch would work. I can take any
    computer or laptop and plug it into the 10/100 5-port switch, assign it a
    external static IP, my isp's gateway, mask and dns and have an internet
    connection outside of my network. I do this quite often as there
    are times I need to troubleshoot exteranl access into my network. That all
    said can I take a cable, plug on end into the 10/100 5-port switch, the
    other end into the wireless router (not the WAN port), assign the WAN
    settings with a static from my ISP. it's gateway and dns servers

    Here's my environment......
    SBS 2003 Premium SP2 w/2 Nics
    ISA 2004 SP3

    We use a 1.5MB T1 DSL connection for our internet access. Here is the
    network topology layout...........

    Inbound DSL T1 line--> DSL Router --> 10/100 5-port Switch --> External NIC
    SBS Server ---> Outbound Internal NIC SBS Server ---> 1GB Switch ---> Patch
    Panels

    Here is my wireless configuration.

    LAN IP Address: 192.168.2.1
    WAN Type: Static IP Address
    WAN IP Address: 64.71.x.x
    WAN Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.248
    WAN Gateway: 64.71.x.x
    Primary DNS: 64.105.172.26
    Secondary DNS. 64.105.163.106

    Now here is what I get from an ipconfig on my laptop......

    internet connection?

    Plug 1 end to the wireless router WAN or Internet port.

    Perhaps you plug your CAT5 cable to the wrong port (LAN port instead of
    WAN)?

    Hi
    If you can assign an external IP to a computer pass the Router and it works
    with the Internet, then it means that your Router does not work as a Router.
    Pass the Router only internal IPs (the 192.168.x.x ) should work.
    Check care fully all the Router settings. The whole IP scheme DHCP, etc,
    depends also on how your are using SBS you have to make sure that there is
    only one DHCP on and that the Gateways and DNS are configured correctly
    according to the roil of the server.
