We recently purchased a cisco 861w for our car repair shop to feed our diagnostic machines. The machines communicate wirelessly with the multiplexer that hooks to the car (making 2 wireless devices per machine). I was able to get through the basic setup and the computer will connect to my router and the multiplexer will connect to my router and both get assigned an ip address from within my specified range, but they will not talk to eachother. I was talking to the helpdesk for our diag machines and they said that udp multicast/broadcast needs to be enabled inorder for them to initially communicate and then they use tcp to communicate after the initial hookup. I was wondering how I can enable this.. or if there is some kind of setting blocking communication between devices on the same wireless network.
My other problem is that I can't get into the "Advanced Wireless" options in the cisco cp or cp express applications... it will open a new web page, ask for my AP username/password and then there is a big internet explorer screen with a rectangle button that says "Enter" and then some cisco leagle disclaimer under that... but when you click on it it just says error on page at the bottom and will not go anywhere... I have tried it on a winxp and a win7 machine with both ie and firefox.. I realize that most of you all use CLI, but if anyone has a fix for that I would be very happy.
I am not a cisco or networking professional... I'm just a guy that got stuck doing this.... so please be gentle with me. I have installed hyperterminal on my win7 machine so I can use the CLI if needed.
Thanks for your help
