The netgear access point is connected to a 5 port netgear hub which is connected to the current LAN. My problem is I can not connect to the network, I can see and connect to the access point fine, but if I want to browse the internet or view files on the network I can not. I can not ping the access point but if I connect the access point from my laptop via a cable I can ping it, but obviously not get on to the network. I have tried using different freqency channels which are 1,3,4,8 and 11, the Bit Rate is set to automatic. Any advise please Thanks R Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
