Thank you for your assistance, could you please take a look at the diag below.

Currently they have the modem feeding into the switch and then a cat6 running to another building where the wireless access point is located. The access point is set to static ip with the info from the isp. Only one laptop can have internet service at a time.

please advise how access point should be setup so that it will serve ip's to the laptops.

Again many thank!
