Okay, wondering if there is a way to use a wireless router as just a wireless access point?

Does one have to shut down DHCP?

trying to find a good guide, or someone that knows how to do this.

What my plan is, is to come out of my modem to a switch, and then down to a wireless router, and just use that as a wireless access for the internet. But when I do that, the laptop shows the wireless, but will not connect to the network, or the internet:banghead:

thanks in advance

Dano
