    Hey there,

    Just seem to be having config issues setting up remote management on a few
    Access Points

    Here's the Situation:

    I wanna be able to remotely connect to 2 AP's that are behind a D-Link
    router(all equipment is DLink)
    the IP's for the AP's are
    If anyone knows the Dlink interface a little better than I do please help me
    out with this process, I've also setup each AP to do MAC filtering for 5
    Wireless DLink NIC's, if that makes any difference.
    Also the router is setup to be remotely managed by an External IP only.

    Thanks for your time Folks.

    You would have to access the AP's from the same side of the router
    that they are on. I don't know of a way to get to them behind the
    router from the outside.
    You could set up a remote access function on a PC behind the router
    and then use that to configure the AP's. Something like VNC, PC
    Anywhere, etc.

    Most AP's include software which scans the wired LAN for the presence
    of their AP's and then shows them in a results window.
    If they don't scan, you can usually still connect to them by IP
    address through the same interface.

    If by "remotely" you mean across the Internet, then you will have to
    have valid public IP addresses for the devices which you want to
    access. Then use the NAT functionality in the router to translate
    between public and private addresses.

    Hi Schiele Jr,

    Try posting the to news://alt.internet.wireless you are more likely to
    get a sensible answer there.
