I'm using my GuruPlug Standard as a wireless access point. However, my router already has a DCHP server running on it, which I want my devices to use rather than GuruPlug's. Is there a way to forward DCHP traffic from the Wifi interface to the Ethernet interface, or is it as simple as disabling the DCHP server running on the Plug?

Thanks

There are two standard solutions to this problem:

1. Bridge the wi-fi interface and the wired one on the plug.
2. Run a DHCP relay on the plug.

You didn't say much about your current network configuration, so it's hard to tell which way would be more appropriate in your situation.

Hey!

I bridged the wifi and the ethernet, but it but it doesn't work. How do you bridged your plug computer? I want do this to access the internet through the plug, i don't have any router. Do you have any experience?

It seems wireless bridging won't work.
