I've set up my 1131 AG with an IP address using a DHCP server. I want to use it to communicate wirelessly with other wireless devices using a laptop as the mother device. I can ping it sucessfully, but cannot use Explorer to access it from my laptop using its IP address.
Since the above, I left it connected for some time and low and behold explorer can now connect to it. I enabled wireless as it comes with same disabled!! and my devices can see the airbase connection but cannot connect to it. It is not WEP encrypted, any clues would be helpful please.
So, you want to setup a wireless network using the 1131 AP. For the Wireless clients to be able to connect to the AP, you need to have a SSID configured on the AP and the wireless client. There is a useful document which explains how to configure a basic wireless connection. The document is available at
The laptop is connected to the 1131AG. I can use its explorer program to see its configuration details. I have given the 1131AG an SSID. It shows 2 clients when I have another laptop wirelessly connected, and a PDA wirelessly connected. BUT, the laptop cannot see either the other laptop or the pda. I have shared folders on the connected laptop but those cannot be seen either. all devices are using the same network name, (WORKGROUP).
I want to be able to use a special piece of software called Synchroneyes to connect with the laptop and pda through the 1131AG but if they don't recognise each other at machine level - I'm stumped!!!
Enabling and Disabling Public Secure Packet Forwarding
Public Secure Packet Forwarding (PSPF) prevents client devices associated to an access point from inadvertently sharing files or communicating with other client devices associated to the access point. It provides Internet access to client devices without providing other capabilities of a LAN. This feature is useful for public wireless networks like those installed in airports or on college campuses.
Note To prevent communication between clients associated to different access points, you must set up protected ports on the switch to which your access points are connected. See the "Configuring Protected Ports" section for instructions on setting up protected ports.
Followed instructions as above. PSPF was already disabled, so I enabled it - no result. Then I disabled it again - still no result. My wireless laptop is running Vista business; in Network and sharing it shows it is connected to "unidentified network". Whether it is set to private or public network it does not get further than the airbase when the network map is created.
The issue I am sure is with the airbase as I have another airbase Linksys that it connects to successfully for access to the internet.As I have two of these airbases for two seperate setups I am concerned that I'm gfetting nowhere at the moment.
