    Hi guys,

    I've connected my Aironet 1200 to my cable modem, and configured it to
    receive its IP and DNS-server addresses per DHCP. Well, this works
    fine. It's being assigned the correct ip address and the correct dns
    servers. However, I can't ping anything on the net, not even the dns
    server. I noticed in the "sh ip traffic" output, that every ping
    results in a packet drop caused by "encapsulation failed". According to
    the output ip packets are coming in and going out all the time... So
    can anyone please tell me, why I can't ping any address? I didn't find
    any command in the Aironet IOS to change the encapsulation..

    I'd be grateful for any help

    You'll need a router.
    The 1200 does *not* route or NAT any packets.
    It's a WLAN-to-Ethernet bridge, not a WLAN/DSL-router

    The AP's bridging will function with any IP from any subnet. It's only
    for accessing the management interface.
