Hi everybody, still need your help... ;(
My mAP 2nD just arrived and I'm trying to configure it. Checking the USB connection with an external HD will be my second step...
As for now, I'm just trying to have internet connection through the LAN port, by catching the signal from the wifi of the main AP.
This what I'm looking for, in order to be able to connect my printer to the network through the mAP, right????
I'll try to describe every step I followed...
1. I connected the mAP to the Mac with the LAN cable and started WinBox v3.18 by using Wine
2. I selected the mAP MAC address and connected to it
3. I followed WeWiNet instructions (thanks!!!) step by step: "Use quick-set, put into CPE device mode, scan for SSID and provide password and select
bridged instead of router mode."
4. I connected to the SSID
Ok, this is what I get:
Status: connected to the ess
Signal to noise: 41 dB
Address Acquisition: Automatic
Address Source: Any
Router Identity: MyNewmAP (different from AP's)
Password: newpwd (different from AP's)
By applying this settings, what I get is that the mAP disappears from the list of the MAC addresses seen by Winbox. Moreover, the wifi icon in the OSX menu bar tells me I'm still connected with my access point but I cannot access any webpage with my browser anymore. This happens also by switching off the wifi and trying to get the signal from the LAN port.
Things turn to be ok again only by unplugging the mAP from the LAN cable...
I'm so sorry, but I really think I'll need a very accurate step by step procedure...
