Looking for some guidance on an issue I am having. I am trying to set up an Asus RT-N12 D1 router as an access point. I followed the steps on a different topic (http://forums.att.com/t5/Residential-Gateway/U-ver
I made sure DHCP is off on the router. The IP address I assigned to the router is 192.168.1.13 and the IP range currently set on the wireless gateway is 192.168.1.64 - 192.168.1.254.
Any tips would be greatly appreaciated.

You can do it easily by reverting everything you have done so far, hooking up your Asus' WAN connection to a LAN on the gateway and then going into your Asus' settings. Then look for the "Operation Mode" button right under "Logout" on the top of the admin page of your Asus router. You then select "Access Point" mode. Your Asus has a dedicated access point mode, so these steps aren't neccessarily needed.
You also don't want to mix APs and STBs on the same switch. By mixing them, you flood the AP with multicast traffic.

That box claims IGMP v3 support, so maybe if you set it up in Access Point mode, it may work on the same switch as the Set Top. If not, try isoloating your wireless access point on an RG port away from any IPTV traffic.
