Hey guys, I have a question that I was hoping that someone might point me in the right direction. I just bought a Linksys WAP last weekend and I hooked it up to my network I also have a latop with a wireless card. I configured the WAP but the laptop can only see the local network and not the internet. Here is my topology:

IP of Nat Box: 192.168.0.1 (on local network)
IP of WAP: 192.168.0.245
IP of laptop: 192.168.0.5

wouldn't the nat box be the gateway for the laptop - sounds reasonable, since it's gotta do all the work, and you can access it.

Thats what I thought too, but that didnt work either. The setup that I mentioned earlier (gateway for the laptop being the WAP) gets the only results (seeing the actual local network).

from what i understand your "WAP" is just another gateway, your laptop gets an IP from the WAP. So with that, do you have your WAP gateway set up to use your NAT box as a gateway? It sounds like your not using DHCP to scope your pcs. Right now I have a DHCP server, but most of my machines are statically assigned ips based on mac address, it makes it easier to configure DNS servers and what not.

Another question is, can you get to a web site via IP, but not via hostname?

have you done packet tracing to see where your packets are dropping off?
