Multiple WP2000 Wireless-G's

Hi,

I've a network sharing a professional internet connection through an IP FIX provided by a local telephone company. The structure of my network is like this:

Modem > Switch cisco PoE + Eth > switch PoE > WP2000

The network is working well, however, I'm not sure about the WP2000 setting... For I've four WP2000 for a small building. Each one contains the same SSID and same WAP2-Mixed password. Each one has been configured with a fixed IP 192.168.1.245 in the basic setup. Thus:

1. Should I keep the same fixed IP for each one, or I should to choose 'Dynamic IP'?

2. If the idea is provide full cover-internet connection inside the building, Should I keep in mind any other setup on each AP?

Thank you!

The ip address for the access points is merely for management.  I would have each one on its own independent ip address that way you can manage them if you need to upgrade firmware or change a setting in them.

Thus, should I kept it as automatical dhcp and then my srw PoE will manage it?

It is completely up to you.  It is always a good idea to do static so you can know what each individual device is by ip address.
