Do Access Points have to use a router?

Hi.

I have a a WG602v4 Wireless Access Point and would like to broadcast the internet from the Virgin Media ethernet modem which is connected to the AP. Ive tried different settings on it but I cant get a wireless laptop to go onto internet. I can access the AP to change settings. The ap has the following broadcasting options:
Access Point
Wireless Point-to-Point Bridging
Wireless Multi-Point Bridging
Repeater with Wireless Client Association
Client Mode

Which should it be? I have a feeling I need a router between the AP and modem tho as Its probably limiting the IP addresses.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Bill

Your conclusion is correct. The ap would be using the only isp assigned ip you have which is why you need a router. Though I don't know what client mode means in this application. Perhaps this mode would just pass thru the ip address.

Thanks for the reply. I would have thought client mode would work, but I tried putting all the required settings in to no avail. Nevermind. Thanks anyway.
