Hi,
I have been having this problem for a long time and it is driving me crazy. I hope you can help me solving this.

Setup:
- ISP router (Vigor)
- LAN router Linksys E4200 (wifi off)
- wifi AP (MINITAR)

Internet connection is routed from ISP router to Linksys and from there via LAN to our desktop PCs and to the AP for WLAN.

IPs:

Default gateway: 10.220.55.10
IP of AP: 10.220.55.50
IP of Linksys: 10.220.55.10
DHCP range: .11-.60

DHCP:

ISP router: OFF
Linksys: ON - Lease time set to default "0" - one day
AP: OFF

MAC Filtering:
ISP router: off
Linksys: off
AP: ON

The problem:

I turn on my notebook's or HTC phone's wifi and I with the notebook, I get only ""limited network access" without internet connection and with the phone, it keeps obtaining IP in a loop without success.

Solution:

I tried to reset Linksys router - did not help.

I tried to reset the AP - THIS HELPED.

So, every time the problem occurs, and it measn a few times per week, I have to reset the AP by unplugging it from power or via the web interface (accessing via my desktop PC (LAN network).

What do you think could be causing this?? I have tried to increase the lease time but it only postponed the problem to later but have not solved it.

Should I replace the AP for a new device?

Thank you in advance for your help.
Marek

Why are you using the AP, and not just using the E4200 wireless?

Do you have the AP address set as a reserved dynamic address in the E4200 settings? If not, either do that or set the AP address to a static address outside the DHCP assignment range.
