Probably know the answer but I'll throw it out there,


I have my main shack computer away from my ADSL and ethernet router. No easy Cat cable run.

When connecting locally I get address of 169.254.244.45 which is not on my local network of 192.168.1.1 I was trying to connect from the iPad or other computer wirelessly but cannot,

So my wireless connection sees the internet but my local ethernet does not.

Reading other posts looks like the solution is a wireless bridge.

Tried bridging in the network config in windows 7 but that didn't work either.

Hope I am not doubling up ,

Found an old Asus n10 router here which has a repeater function and works quite well a few small issues but it is working quite well otherwise

Can't change admin password from default and can't get it to auto connect to the AP , 

A better extender may be required.

Now all is on the same network ,


Thanks for the pointers
