Thread: wl-500gp as a wireless client

    wl-500gp as a wireless client

    I wanted to use wl-500gp (Oleg FW installed) as a wireless client (bridge) to connect to another router. The connection was successful: when I check the wireless status of wl-500gp, it shows it is connected and the signal strength is around -50dbm. However, when I ping the router from wl-500gp, there is no response. Also the computer behind wl-500gp is not connected to the router.

    I will appreciate any suggestion on this.

    There is a status page in the menu on the left side. Check if your asus got an IP address by your other router, because a successful wireless connection doesn't also mean that your asus got an ip from your other router automatically. If it does not, then you can try to connect by clicking the "connect" button (automatic IP should be chosen in lan config and on your other router DHCP must be enabled for this to work) If it doesn't work, then chose a static IP in the lan configuration on your asus and deactivate dhcp on the other one and restart. And most importantly both routers should be in the same subnet (for example and their ip must be different (example router1:, example router2:
    Have fun!

    Thanks for your reply, but it did not work for me. WHen I click the "connect" button on the "status" page, nothings happens. I am also not sure what "automatic IP should be chosen in lan config" means because there is no such option. For wan, yes, but wan is disabled once the wireless mode is changed to WDS. For Lan, there is no such option. I did manually assign an IP to Asus that is on the same subnet as the other router; after all, that is how I can access Asus and config it, but it does not bridge the connection.

    Any other suggestions? Thanks.

    If you want to use your asus as a client, you don't need wds mode. You need ap only mode. And if for some reason you need wds then all routers involved must be wds capable. I also run my router as a client, if you need screenshots let me know.
