RE: TO START OFF THANK YOU FOR ANY HELP

The quick start guide directs you to set a static IP address on your computer to the 192.168.1.X network to access the devices. The default address of the units are 192.168.1.1. If your network/router is already defaulted to this address range, you may still need to statically address your computer, as the router address may be 1.
Once you have applied a static address to your computer (i.e. 192.168.1.10), connect one of the AP units to your computer with an Ethernet cable. Open a browser on your computer and type in the address 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. At the login screen, the user id and password are both admin.
One unit will need to be set up as an “Access Point” (home end), the other will need to be set up in “Client Bridge Mode” (barn end), and will connect to the Access Point.

If you are unfamiliar with setting static IP addresses, network addressing, or configuring access points, you might want to enlist some local help. It would take too long to go through all of these things in this forum. I would start with a local teenager, or college kid. They know everything…just ask them and they will tell you.

Where are you John? It sounds like you are in need of some assistance and you haven't got time to become an expert in all this networking lark.
I am hoping the COOP society ethos will previal here. If you are near to me I am more than happy to come and help you - the world is a big place though... I'll probably want a lamb in return though...
