    I have a Spectrum 24 model 2030 AP hooked into my network. I can
    connect to it as far as it showing a wireless network connection.
    Signal strength excellent. But I cannot access it or anything beyond
    it.
    When plugging in my belkin at the same time, I am able to access the
    Spectrum AP, itself telneting in and configuring etc.
    I have the Spectrum 24 setup with a IP address with the gateway being
    one of the PC's on the network.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated

    Your Belkin what? Plugging into what? The Spectrum AP?

    As near as I can see on Symbol's web-site, there is no such thing as a model
    2030 AP. There is a model 2030 handheld barcode scanner. Spectrum24 APs
    come in models 4131, 4121, and 3021. If you're using the model 3021, we
    have found your problem: it only supports 2 Mbps 802.11, not 802.11b.

    For any IP device, the Default Gateway should be set to the address of a
    router on the same network (LAN segment) that will route you toward the
    Internet. If the PC you mentioned is running ICS (or equivalent software)
    and will route you toward the Internet, then you've chosen correctly;
    otherwise, not.

  3. The Spectrum 24 product line is Frequency Hopping, not Direct Sequence
    spread spectrum. Both FHSS and DSSS are 802.11 compatible. You'll be
    able to talk to Breezecom/Alvarion and Raylink radios, but nothing
    else.

    No I plugged the Belkin AP into a switch. The Spectrum is plugged into
    the switch as well, along with a desktop PC.
    I was hoping to use the Spectrum as a AP for that network using a
    laptop, because of the range capacity is supposed to have.
