Hi fellow WL500 users!
I'm trying to create a WDS bridge to my neighbor's wireless.
I would like to configure my WL500Gx as WDS, but I would like to be able to keep AP functionality, so I'm trying to use the Hybrid mode.
I use factory defaults, the latest Oleg firmware, no security/encryption (yet) and only changed my SSID and Wireless bridge mode (AP Only => Hybrid).
As soon as I change the mode to Hybrid, DHCP doesn't seem to work in my WL500. Normally I connect and issue an ipconfig on the client I receive the IP address 192.168.1.2 and the gateway is 192.168.1.1.
When I put the WL500Gx in Hybrid and connect to it, connecting takes much longer and an ipconfig shows 169.254.218.235 and no gateway. This leads me to believe that DHCP is not working in Hybrid mode. Is this correct?
Thank you very much for any help!!!
