Hi there

I would like to configure my T-Link Access Point (TL-WA501G) to Billion ADSL router (BiPAC 7404VGP) to get wireless internet on my laptop.

I want to setup my network as in the picture

Your ipconfig only shows a wired card. Where is the wireless card?
Your ipconfig looks wrong with multiple class A addresses. Why aren't you uisng private ip [192.168.x.x]?

Actually my connection is a cable net its not ADSL2+ when this guy(cable guy) setting up the network he change i noticed that he changed default AP (TP-Link WA 501G) address from 192.168.1.1 to 11.11.34.19 and assigned IP address to desktop PC as 11.11.34.19 and did some changes in Network Adapter ==> TCP/IP please refer to attached picture for clear idea
http://img827.imageshack.us/img827/...

Anyhow last night i was successful to get wireless connection on my laptop (what i did is plug the ethernet cable coming from AP to Billion Router LAN port, its a wifi enabled router then i configure my laptop TCP settings similar to desktop, but now the problem is i cant access internet on my desktop, do you think its because of Static IP Address provided by cable guy ?

192.168.X.X refers to gateway for Billion Router, its default config page is accessed by 192.168.1.254 if i doesnt add 192.168.x.x then i cant see router config page that's why i added the IP address of 192.168.x.x

All i want is to get internet on my laptop and desktop at same time, please guide me how to configure both AP and Router to get connection on both devices.
I am attaching more pics of my AP and Router Config web pages.

You have quite the mess.

The billion router has no wan ip according to the screen capture. No wan ip means no internet access.
The billion router is acting as a dhcp server in the 192.168.1.x network

The AP is in the 11.x.x.x subnet and with no gateway. WTHeck!

Then to top it off you have two static ip addresses on your laptop that are not in the subnet of the billion router.

Someone was REALLY confused about ip addressing
###############################################################

Here is what you do to correct the ip addressing. You must follow this order.

Laptop Wired to AP
1. logon to the AP and change its ip address to as follows;
ip address 192.168.1.253
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.1.254 [billion router gateway you will note]
save the config and exit.

Laptop Wired to Billion
2. on your laptop remove the static ip entries and set to automatically assigned
reboot.
You should get a ip address in the 192.168.1.x range.

3. AP is wired to a lan port on the Billion router.

Now you should be able to ping/connect to both the AP and the Billion router's config pages.

4. Go into the Billion router
Configure the dhcp server scope to something like 192.168.1.1 thru 5 which will provide you with 5 ip addresses. If you need more in the future you can expand the scope easily. This also prevents the router from assigning the ip addresss assigned to the AP.

Now that we have the lan ip addressing correct we have to figure out why the Billion router isn't getting a wan ip address. Then we would work on getting wireless to work on both the Billion and AP without conflict.

Hi Wanderer

I followed your guide thing luk good but after a reboot (Step 2) it went messy now i cant access AP webpage and Routers webpage......

If i doesnt put 10.201.60.19 in tcp/ip i cant access Internet, so what i did is reverted back all the changes which u guided me

I forgot to mentioned that every time when i power on the system i have to enter username and password in order to get connect with internet.
http://10.201.60.1/ This is where it asks for username and password.

http://10.201.60.1/ is this my ISP add ?

Plz check ur PM

Thanks

Stay focused. Don't work on things outside of the 1,2,3 scope.

according to your picture the billion router is configured as a dhcp server. logon to the billion and confirm the dhcp scope is in the 192.168.1.x range. You should have gotten a dhcp ip address from the billion. Fact you say cant access AP webpage and Routers webpage means you didn't get a ip address from the router.

This has to be addressed first before moving on.
Confirm the dhcp scope
Confirm your laptop is set to get a dhcp ip
Post the results of an ipconfig /all after you have confirmed these items.

On a sidebar:
"i have to enter username and password in order to get connect with internet."

This is not an example of a cable hookup but of dsl doing PPPoE [point to point protocol over ethernet]. Cable does not ask you for either a user account or a password. PPOE has you authenicate to a server before you get on the internet.

Sorry but I can't do teamviewer from work even if I am in control of the network. It's against policy [I wrote :-)] I do this to keep myself from being bored silly doing IT paperwork.

the objective it to get you lan access via being in the same subnet to both the AP and the router.

I still need to see that ipconfig /all after the changes recommended. Thx

You still need to uncheck ipv6 in your tcp/ip properties but the good news is it appears you are getting a dhcp ip from the router.

Were you able to connect to the TP AP?

Is there a place in the billion router under pppoe for putting in user name and password?

It should be the router making the connection not your pc.

1. Uncheck ipv6 tcp/ip

2. yes i can connect to TL AP with IP address of 192.168.1.253 and Billion Router with 192.168.1.254

3. I can enter user name password in billion router in pppoe mode

since you have to input a ip address you would want to do this on the ppp interface. Looks like you are there!
