I'm having a bit of a nightmare here, and I'm hoping that someone can help me out. What I'm *trying* to do is configure a TP Link WR703N to act as a wireless bridge for my pineapple thus: Internet <====> Wireless AP <====> WR703N <====> Pineapple I'm configuring the 703N as a minipwner, only I'm not completing the build, just building it up to the point that I have connectivity through to my wireless AP. At this point I have something along these lines: Laptop eth0 on 192.168.1.111, connected to: WR703N eth0/br-lan on 192.168.1.1, bridging to: WR703N wlan0 on 192.168.2.21, connected to Wireless AP on 192.168.2.1 With it setup like that, bridging works fine, and I can connect to the internet from my laptop, via the WR703N (and wireless is disabled, so it definitely IS going that way!), with no issues. If I change the IP address on the WR703N to 172.16.42.42, and the IP on my laptop to mimic the pineapple as 172.16.42.1, then I can no longer bridge through the device. The only thing that has changed is the IP. If I try and ping from the laptop, it can't resolve DNS names, and times out trying to reach IP addresses. I've cleared ARP caches, and compared /etc/config/network ../system and ../wireless files a dozen times over, but nothing is different save the IP addresses. Has anyone done something similar and experienced/resolved the issue? Thanks
