I want to set up the BEFW11S4 as a router and access point in the opposite corner of the house from the main wireless router. My main router is address 192.168.1.1, and I configured the BEFW11S4 as 192.168.1.2, with a different WEP key and turned off DHCP, so the main router will hand out addresses.
I am not able to ping the BEFW11S4, nor can I access it with IE. I have a CAT5 Ethernet cable going to the WAN port, and configured the WAN address as 192.168.1.1. I also have an Ethernet-connected PC to the BEFW11S4 and can't see it nor ping it.
you need to connect the 2 routers using regular ports. example, from port 1 of main router going to port1 of befw11s4. do not configure the wan ip of befw11s4 anymore. it should only be set to "obtain an ip automatically".
