i have been using cable modem for a while with one laptop via ethernet. however, i am having trouble setting up the linksys 802.11a/b access point (not a router ap combo) with the cable modem.
i changed the tcp/ip setting in my laptop and could connect to the access point wirelessly, but i could not get onto internet. i am lost with this. could someone help? i am sure that i am not the only one having this issue.
after i contacted linksys thru online chat, i still could not connect to internet. i set my tcp/ip to a static ip address: 192.168.1.20 with subnet mask being 255.255.255.0. i still could not connect to internet. can someone help?
wasn't sure u could connect without a router. what are the settings for the access point? you may need to set it up as and extender and set the laptop to 192.168.1.251 i believe is the default ip of linksys access point.
