|You can't have two devices having the same ip address. They won't be able to communicate.|
glenbelt are you following the manual? Page 3.2.2 shows Station Adhoc with its settings.
This is from the manual:
"When you use this access point as a wireless station for wired network
device to have wireless capability, you have to associate it will an working
access point. Click “Select Site Survey” button, then a “Wireless Site
Survey Table” will pop up. It will list all available access points near by.
You can select one access point in the table and it will join wireless LAN
through this access point."
then it says;
Click Apply button at the bottom of the screen to save the above configurations. You can now configure
other advance sections or start using the Access Point.
Then there are advanced settings become available like setting the security on the wireless communication.
It appears that all you need to do is follow the manual. If you are having issues due to security, remove any encryption from your wireless router, get the connection working then go back and set the encryption back again.
