Okay, I get the "RTFP" Read the " " Post vibe.
I fully understand that.
However, I want to make sure you understand that I don't have a modem to hook a router to... everything I read about making my linksys into an AP says I have to have a modem first.
If that is the case, and I am SOL I just need to know that.
I can put in pppoe password, etc in my router - but it never gets an IP from the wireless AP in the hall. (I just checked and there is a Linksys WAP54G AP in the ceiling of the hall)
So do I need an AP of my own? I still don't think that would work because it would not be connected directly to the AP in the hall. I guess I am an idiot when it comes to all of this.
I have a switch and a router... what if I put the switch in the ceiling between the AP and the lan cable that runs to it, and then another short cable to the AP and a long cable to my router... would that possibly work?
The worst part of all of this... you can't go buy parts, you have to get them mailed to you and hope they are what you need over here. If they end up not being useful, good luck getting your money back when you return it from Afghanistan.
Not to mention... everything here runs on 220, instead of 110... so always hard to get power issues worked out.
Well, I will be checking for any further wisdom... thanks.
