The point to point is workink perfectly, when I connect wired lan on the other side all the wired devices get IP from my DHCP server with any problems... BUT.. when I tried to connect a wireless devices (like a laptop or smartphone) I don't get IPs address, I can see on the web interface of cisco 1300 that the devices are associated..but IP Could you plese help with this issue...?? thanks in advance..

The problem could be caused by a bad WEP key. Are you using static WEP for your connection?

It's also easy to misconfigure VLANs when creating a bridge link. Could you post the configuration for the bridge and the switch to which it connects?

Ok, I see. Actually, I don't have any Vlan created (My switches don't supported that). My network's design is very simple.. and YES, I am using static WEP static for my connection.

Root w/clients)= I have one generic router (encore) with dhcp server on, ADSL ppoe for the internet connection; the cisco root is conected to one of the port on the router.

NonRoot w/clients)= Here, I have the UTP wire of the cisco nonroot power injector connected to a generic SWTICH 8 ports (encore). And 2 wired Desktop PCs connected to the switch. both of them get IP address without any problems. All the PCs are on the same subnet..192.168.1.xx/24 it's transparent on both side. I have "ping" perfectly.

Channel 4.

My problem is with wireless devices; they are associated to the AP but they don't get IP¨.

Thanks ...!
