I just noticed something very strange. I have my Cisco SA 520W router set up to broadcast my virtual access point. I even have it now as OPEN with no security for the testing purposes (Since I was thinking that the WPS or WPA may be the issue). Here is what happens:
My MacBook Pro and my PC can both see my VAP. When I try to connect the Mac does nothing and it seems it loads for al little bit after which nothing happens. The PC tries, connects and then it only get local access. The odd thing is that the IP of the wireless is totally different then the LAN IP that the PC has. The router DHCP is set to give addresses from 10.1.1.100 to x. But the IP of the wireless is 169.254.124.75 when the IP of the Ethernet card is 10.1.1.160.
What am I missing? Why is the IP of the PC wireless with such an IP when the DHCP is supposed to only give the 10... IPs?
I restored to factory default the router settings (everything was working few days ago) and I still cannot get it to work. I disconnected all my equipment from the network and I only have the PC and the Mac directly connected to the SA520W. The PC is a laptop running Vista when the MacBook is running Leopard.
Your help will be GREATLY appreciated.
