I recently bought a 915G-2HnD and I've been reading a few tutorials and things online and so far I've got it almost set up. It's running as an access point in my study, but I think it's a bit over complicated for the job and I'm struggling to whittle down the multitude of options to what I actually want. Ethernet 1 is connected via a long cable to our talktalk router, and then 2 is my desktop, 3 a htpc and 4 a server in the study. It's also providing wifi for a few devices in this side of the house where the talktalk box can't reach.
The ap comes out the box with the address 184.108.40.206 and hands out addresses in the .88.XXX range, how can I change that to give out static addresses in the .2.XX range? I have a few devices in the house that all point to the server and they expect a static address of .2.210. I have tried changing the ip address pool and the dhcp settings but each time I end up leaving the router uncontactable, so I'm obviously not doing it right!
Secondly, as a linux user I do a lot of torrenting for distros and the like, can I open a port (say 50000) so that deluge can torrent unhindered?
As I've said, I have been looking online for this help, so sorry if these are questions that have been answered elsewhere, I have tried to look I promise!
Thanks in advance,
