    Default z4w wifi in bridge mode

    I'm not exactly a newbie in networking, but when I start working with routers I become brain-dead. I like Untangle because many of the features are easy to manage, but anything requiring advanced routing knowledge leaves me helpless.

    I have a new z4w that I am using in bridge mode, because I can't put my ISP's modem/router in pass-thru mode. That's a whole other story - new ISP soon, I hope.

    I am having trouble with the wifi. Both the internal and wlan interfaces are bridged to the External interface, which connects to the cheesy router supplied by the ISP. Sees to work fine, mostly.

    Tried to assign a static IP address to a computer's wifi adaptor, and it wouldn't connect to the z4w's wifi. If I set the wifi adaptor to DHCP, it works fine. If I set the Ethernet adapter to the same static IP, it also works fine.

    Is there something different a guy has to do with the z4w's wireless setup when the unit is used in bridge mode?

    Thanks...

    Default GW/ISP router address: 192.168.2.1

    UT eth0 external IP Address: 192.168.2.254

    Both the eth1 and the wlan0 interfaces are bridged to the external interface.

    Is that what you were asking for, Jim?

    yup, thanks.

    what is the rest of the configuration for static?
    It should match that from DHCP.

    It could be that there is another device at that address?
