modem/router 327w what makes is ad-hoc or infrastructure?

Is there a setting that change it from one to another?
If so where and what is it called?

I have looked through the setting but I just can not figure out which of the setting it is.

The modem is 327w modem/router from Verizon DSL.

Also since I am not 100% sure of what the current setting is, is there a way of determining what the modem/router is set to?

I have a hp iPAQ which has wireless capablity, if I set it to look for infrastructure it only sees my neighbor wireless connection with a signal strenght of 10-50%.

However if I set it to look for ad-hoc connection I get a signal strength of 100% .

So this is why I am asking.

ad hoc is computer to computer. You don't set that in the router. What you want to do is determine why the HP isn't seeing your router. Is SSID broadcast enabled?

This part of my problem, I really do not know if it is enabled or not.
If I look at my ipconfig /all it says enabled in one place and disabled in another.

Using a program on h5455 called vxUtil, I am able to ping the other computers. So it does seem like there is some kind of wireless transmission. Also if I look at my statistics page on the 327w, I find that information has been transmitted and received by the wireless connection.


Have I provided any useful information or do you need more?

If that's the ipconfig /all output of the HP, then it's getting an IP address from the Westell & your connection should be working.

Can you ping the DNS? 68.237.161.12

Can you ping google.com ?

Can you browse?

Actually that was not the output of the h5455 but the computer I am now which is hardwired to the 327w.

Can you ping the DNS? 68.237.161.12 Request timed out

Can you ping google.com ? No

Can you browse? No

I will place the information in the next note.

I have bolded the items that change inbetween the 2 different settings.

Can you ping the DNS? 68.237.161.12 NO

Can you ping google.com ? NO

Can you browse? NO

I am really getting confused here there are just too many variables.

It does seem that I am getting something with the Lease info now being filled in but what I have no idea.

Just getting more confused.

I just tried the under the ad-hoc setting

Can you ping the DNS? 68.237.161.12 Yes instead of no awhile ago.
Can you ping google.com ? NO "Can not find address." http:www.google.com

Can you browse? NO "the page you are looking for can not be found."

Why did this change is there some time period.

The answer is on that page. Here's are 2 quotes:

"When the PPC is in the cradle it will use the 192.168.55.101 address. The fix is to remove the PPC from the cradle if you need to use the network (wired or wireless)..."

------------
"When all else fails, read the instructions..."
