I was given a Cisco 1131AG to use as an Access Point on my home network. I have a modem that feeds my Belkin wireless router and I would like to run a 75 foot cat5 cable accross my house and give the backside of the house a better signal. I ran the wire from one of the numbered ports on the belkin wireless router and plugged in my AP. it flashes amber and red.

I do have access to a LAN controller and I have plugged it in and changed the name and tried both DHCP and giving it a static within the range of my belkin's IPs. Both have failed. I have limited knowledge when it comes to certain networking things.

I know it should be possible. Also, I don't know how to log directly into the access point without using my lan controller. Thanks.

follow this article for the setup



To address your present issue you either need to set the cisco back to factory so its dhcp server is enabled or assign yourself a static ip in the routers subnet.  So if the router is at you can give yourself so you are in the same lan subnet as the router.
