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.
