sony bravia wired manual connection help


[link to this post]
 
hi there,
I've recently bought a sony bravia internet TV model EX52 and would like to connect it to the internet.
For this, I've bought D-Link Xtreme N Due Wireless Bridge / Access Point DAP-1522.
I have set up Dlink and is connected to my wireless router. I have my satellite receiver connected to the bridge via Ethernet cable so I know that D-link set up is ok and working.

Now I want to connect the sony TV to the internet via the D-link using Ethernet cable.
the auto set up isnt working as when I finish the set up it gives:
Cable Connection: OK
Local Access: Failed
Internet Access: Failed

I've turned down the router and TV for 2 minutes that didn't work as well.

The only other option is to use manual wired connection.
my AP IP address is 192.168.0.50
If I put this as the IP it gives connection OK: Local Access OK but Internet connection Failed
Please help

When you try the manual connection what settings are you entering?

These should be an IP address that is in the subnet of your main router, then you usually have to specify the subnet mask (255.255.255.0 usually), the address of the gateway (router) and a DNS server (the gateway address usually).

The access point should be pretty much transparent if it is operating in a bridge mode.
