✔ Best Answer
What you state in your post won't work. Those are two completely different subnets and they can't communicate with each other without adding a route in your router.

Your AP should have been configured with an IP address within the same subnet as the router.

A typical detault router setup (using the router IP from above) would be the following:

Subnet Mask:
DHCP Enabled = Yes
DHCP Scope = to

Since your DHCP Scope runs from 100 to 199 and .1 is in use by the router, that leaves .2 through to .99 unused. I would recommend using .2 for the AP. So when you configure it, it should have the following TCP/IP settings:
IP Address:

Now it will be in the same subnet as the router and any computer connected to the router will be able to access the AP using it's LAN IP (

You may have to reset the AP to factory defaults and reconfigure it with the correct TCP/IP settings. Do so as per the manual.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
