Help setting up access point using Specific IP range/DNS servers/Gateway
So I've just moved into a dorm where we are given access to ethernet but not to wifi. If we want wifi we are required to get our own router. Hence why I purchased the Tp-link.
unfortunately, Its not very intuitive as I can't just simple plug it and run a smart setup.
For my internet I am given very specific ranges. Mainly:
IP Addresses: 10.150.60.120 through 10.150.60.127. These are supposed to be per device on the LAN.
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway/Router : 10.150.60.254
Primary DNS : 10.150.127.2
Secondary DNS: 10.150.125.2
Currently, Ive been trying to set it as a static IP with one of the given IP addresses and the subnet mask given.
Then I go to DHCP and fill in the info for the Default Gateway, Primary and Secondary DNS.
While still in DHCP: I change the pool such that it ranges between the given addresses minus the one used for LAN to account for the allocated IP addressed.
However this typically leads to a result of nothing happening or me being unable to connect to the access point at all.
Has anyone dealt with this issue before or can anyone lend me some pointers?
I'd really like to get the wifi here up and running.
One more tidbit of information. When i run the ethernet direction to my laptop and do these same settings in TCP/IPv4 in the ethernet properties. It runs perfectly fine and I can connect.
