Could be almost anything, but we need more details.

What is the make/model of the broadband modem, router or access point, and what is working and non-working? are you using an AP to connect to a wireless router? What version/patch level of Windows on this machine. This appears to be a wired connection, at least I don't see any wireless adapters.

The broadband modem is a Motorola Surfboard SB5120, Router is a Dlink DI-624 Wireless Router, two Dlink DWL-2100 AP Access Points and a DSS-5+ Switch.
I can get the remote computer to work with a cable directly to the router but I cannot get it to work with the Access Points. The connection say little or no connectivity. I have Windows firewall disabled on the remote computer. I can see the Access Point on the main computer but I cannot see it on the remote computer. When I type in 192.168.0.50 from the remote computer it cannot find the Access Point.
The connection is like this. The cable modem goes to the router. the access point goes to the router the remote computer is hooked to the switch which is hooked to the 2nd access point.
The remote computer and main computer both have Win XP SP2 and are current with patches.
thanks for your support!!

Did you do a factory reset of the AP's and configure them as the instruction dictate? It sounds like a configuration issue with the AP's, but it's hard to tell from this end. Do you see the AP appearing in the available wireless connections?

Yes, did a factory reset on both APs and I cannot see the AP from the remote computer to change any settings. All I see is limited or no connectivity. When I look at the Local Area Connection it only has Sent Packets and none Received.

The AP's I've configured needed to be connected as the ONLY device on the connection first and configured using your browser. After configuration, you could put them in the network and use them normally.

I connected the AP to the remote computer directly & through a swictch but I cannot connect ot the AP either way. So I connected to the AP with the main computer and configured it that way. But when I connect it to the remote computer I still cannot get connection. It say limited or no connectivity.

Well, it seems simple enough. FWIW, the AP's will appear transparent when everything is working properly. Have you talked to D-Link tech support? This is a classic use of the AP's, and should be pretty easy to configure.

I called them, but the APs are outside the warrrenty period and they want me to pay for support. I guess I will have to pay them. I appreciate all your help.
Thanks

Rather than pay, it might be cheaper to buy one more AP of the same type. :smile: Then you can get support for the "new" one which will also cover the old ones.

This is an issue that would probably be simple for me to figure out if I had my hands on the units, but harder by remote control.
