WAP4410N - Local access only problem

I have a WAP4410N that only allows my laptop local access, no Internet.  Here is the scoop:

- Other users connect to the WAP and get Internet access

- Laptop connects to many other networks and has Internet access

  - Laptop is running Vista

  - ipconfig /all has address, mask, gateway, DNS, and looks normal

  - Adapter is Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g with latest drivers

Any ideas?

Re: WAP4410N - Local access only problem

I see this too - its related to arp it seems. In my case, the router does not have the ARP entry for the wifi client, and though it does ARP for it, it can't get a response.

Reloading the 4410N seems to fix it, but clearly isn't a long term solution.

Re: WAP4410N - Local access only problem

I have this issue in spades.

My investigation shows that the WAP4410N does not forward the broadcast ARP request from the router to the clients so that they cannot answer it. Therefore the router does not know where to send the packets for the clients. Pinging the router from the wireless client clears this up but is crazy annoying to users.

I have 4 of these configured as a single SSID. Can't recommend these to anyone.
