    I have a Cisco 871 wireless router and am having problems configuring it to
    act as a Wireless Access Point for my small internal network. Using Cisco’s
    SDM Express, when trying to change the LAN Interface IP from its default to I keep receiving an error: connection lost.

    Is anyone familiar with the steps to accomplish this. Also, I’m a little
    uncertain under the Wireless section for Router which IP Protocol IP Address
    and Sub to use for Radio0-802.11G. Finally, what IP to use for WPA RADIUS

    Thank you for any suggestions.

  2. You may want to contact a local Cisco source
    Wireless Routers are not designed to act as an Access Point inside the LAN,
    but you can get there. I'm not a Cisco guy so I can't tell you whats
    required on that device.

    Would probably save you many hours if you bring someone in and be done in
    1-2 hours
