I have an access point already configured (with another AP and it's 3 IP cameras) and I can get in with a WinXP laptop (by AP's IP address) who is wired connected, directly to the AP.
Now, I want to mount an Ubuntu computer to stay connected as my laptop is. There is not any difference, only OS.
First of all, I was trying to get in the AP (via browser and AP IP addr) like this:
AP and Ubuntu desktop connected to a switch, and this connected to a router (The IP address of the AP is static). With this, I can't get in to the AP. Even so, writing in terminal nmap -A -PN 192.168.1.123, I get this: "Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 hosts up) scanned in 201.64 sec"
With this, I understand that my computer CAN see the AP right :O?
PD: Doing this with my computer connected directly to the AP via eth cable it's the same thing.
Sorry about my English and Thanks!
