    Right where to start, well over the past year i have been making do with connecting to xbox live through my laptop, unfortunately it died the death and was an impractical way of doing things so i decided to invest in a TP-Link TL-WA701ND Access point and have just got around to trying to set it up.

    After trying to get it to connect to my router and failing i set my router to factory settings and eventually it managed to connect however my xbox wasnt connecting to xbox live so i enables DHCP on the access point and reset it however i can no longer connect to my access point through its ip address of http://192.168.1.254.

    I decided to connect my Access point to my pc and it shows up and is trying to get me to create a network which i did and it still wont let me access it via the ip address.

    Any ideas welcome

    Thanks

    Dave

    sounds like it could be an address conflict between the router and access point!

    You can no longer access the wap because it's ip address has been changed by the dhcp server on your router. When you set the wap to dhcp, it got told a new address to use by your router. Log into your router and there should be a list of attached devices which will include the wap.

    Have you set the wap to 'Wireless Bridge' mode? That should allow your xbox to connect, once you've entered your router's wifi details into the wap settings.

    hi, the default ip address on the access point is 192.168.1.254, and when i reset it numerous times, it still wont connect. Ive tried pinging it and it says destination host unreachable sent=4 recieved=4 lost=0 (0% loss). and i will just look on my router to see if its connected.

    Just checked on my router and tried pinging the wap via the router and no luck, its not recieving the ping and its not in the dhcp tables or listed as connected to the computer.

    It is however showing as a separate wireless network on my computer?

    Thanks for the quick replies

    Dave
