i was able to connect upto a little while ago..
before connecting the router to my desktop i was using a crossover cable to share the internet from Desktop to laptop successfully. But after connecting the router the crossover cable internet sharing is not working anymore..
my LAN adapter on Windows is showing Unidentified network(No valid IP). and on laptop(Ubuntu) i am not getting an internet connection.
Previously i used to get the connection on Ubuntu :(

you need to get the ICS on the Desktop working again before connecting the router as an AP.

once the ICS is working you should be able to get the IP info needed from the laptop to setup the router as an AP

make sure the DHCP is disabled on the router before you connect it to the desktop or it might disable the ICS

ICS was enabled and i was accessing internet on my other computers through LAN.
after experimenting with the router somehow i am unable to do that even.

did you assign a static ip to the desktop?

I expected the IP of the LAN to end in .1

what is the LAN IP of the router?

if the desktop's IP is 192.168.1.xxx, the router should have 192.168.1.253 and DHCP disabled

desktop's LAN ip is 192.168.0.2
router IP is 192.168.0.1
when i type 192.168.0.1 in the address bar i get to the router's setting page
