Sounds good. Will reconfig early next week when I return and report back.

Will also have to figure out the authentication issue, but for now I have internet.

Thanks.

Back home again, yippee.

From my desktop, have used the nmap command and, by unplugging then replugging the cable to the 624 router/AP, have determined that it's ip # is 192.168.0.104.

I put that address into a browser, hit enter, and nothing happens.

From an earlier post in this thread, it should be possible to reach the admin panel of a downstream router/AP. But I still cannot.

For info, the 624 router has had DHCP disabled and the cable from the switch is plugged into one of the four 624 lan ports. I did forget to change the LAN IP address from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.99, but it seems to work OK with the exception of being slow to load non-mobile enabled web pages on my Nexus 7 tablet. However does this have anything to do with not being able to reach the admin panel of the 624 from my desktop?

If DHCP is disabled and the network cable is attached to a LAN port, then it has only one IP address, so which is it? 192.168.0.104 or 192.168.0.99?

From the previous post, ip# is .104

Since, as mentioned, I forgot to set the ip# of the 624 at .99, my system would not know anything about it.

So back to my question, why am I not able to reach the 624 from my desktop at .104?

Thanks

Are you sure the cable from the 655 is plugged a LAN port on the 624. Is the desktop connected to the 655 or 624? Did you actually configure the WAN port and not the LAN port of the 624?

I double checked and it is definitely plugged into the lan port of the 624.

At my age, I could have done anything wrong, so I am going to reset the 624, plug it into my desktop (ethernet port of desktop, lan port of 624), go into LAN settings and turn off DHCP.

This time, I will remember to set the IP# for the 624 at .99, but please confirm where this should be done in LAN, WAN, or what? (I think it should be LAN, but want to be sure.)

FWIIW, I also turn off UPnP, and set a password using WPA-PSK (earlier trouble that I encountered with trying to set up a passphrase was that I was selecting WPA, where it should have been WPA-PSK).

Thanks.

Correct should be LAN settings.

That was it!

Just needed to get the 624 outside the range that the 655 was using. Thanks all for you patience and help.

I must be confusing the 624 with another router/AP that I have been working on in a different city, but I thought that I had found an option to turn UPnP off. The 624 may even pre-date UPnP. Anyway I cannot find it now even after going through every option that I can see.

Does anyone know if the 624 has PnP?

Edit: Found it. From startup menu, click on Tools, then Misc.
