I have a WRP400 connected to the internet, and have a WAG160N that I no longer use and would like to to extend my wireless range.
I connected them via an ethernet cable and it seems to work fine without configuring the WAG160N (seemed to just work automatically), but I can't access the WAG160N admin GUI (tried all sorts of IPs in the WRP400 range) to change any settings (frustrating). My guess is that it's probably not the best way to set it up.
Reading the posts here I have follow these steps but I have a few questions:
1. Set the IP of the WAG160N (The WRP400 is set to 192.168.15.1, so should I change the WAG160N to 192.168.15.2. Or should I be setting it within the WRP400's DHCP range which starts at 192.168.15.100?)
2. Swtich off the DHCP on the WAG160N. (I think I tried this late last night and it wouldn't assign an IP to my laptop, unless I did somehting wrong)
3. Connect the two using a ethernet cable.
After I do this I should still be able to access the WAG160N's admin GUI with the IP assigned in step 1?
Thanks very much and I look forward to hearing your expert advice.
