Cable Internet & WIFI


Hi there! I have a cable internet. My cable modem is connected to AP via LAN (AP DLINK DWL-2000AP+). I installed ndiswrapper and with its help created a new wireless connection in control center (my card is DLINK DWL G650+)
It must be said that modem has its own IP address and when using in Windows i make G650 to choose IP automatically. In order to connect to my AP i change IP to 192.168.0.* (any from AP's subnetwork). In this way Internet doesn't work.
When in Linux, i can establish connection only between AP and my notebook, seting 192.168.0.* IP. In this and any other way(DHCP) I dont have internet!
So, how can i manage with it, i mean how can have internet?
Mandrake Linux 10.1 2.6.8.1-12
Thanks

In reading the manual the default IP setting for the AP is static ie 192.168.0.50 (page 15). You will need to change this to DHCP so the AP can get an IP address from the modem. You then need to configure the DHCP server (page 24) so that your PC will be assigned a private IP address. The modem does not have its own IP address unless it is also a router. What is the make / model of the modem? Does the internet work in windows when you configure it to choose an IP automatically?

Just phoned to my provider. They told me that modem is working as a router.
Yes, when in Windows i set to choose IP automatically everything works great
And one more question: what manual? =)

I was refering to the AP manual. But if it works in windows that it must be a configuration setting in Mandrake.

When you configure Mandrake using DHCP is an actual IP being assigned?
Did you configure the gateway on Mandrake to be the IP address of the AP?

uh... you see, when seting DHCP i can't set gateway(may be it's possible,but i dont know where to =) ) In this way typing ifconfig returns instead of IP something like ipv6 and a long line in... damn, i dont know this word in english =(, i mean in the MAC format.
hm.... do you mean, that AP's static IP should be the gateway for Mandrake?
Or not?
