I have cat 6 cable ran from the viasat modem to an old to to link modem, I have set up the to link as an access point and changed the up to 196.168.1.2

I connected to it wirelessly and had a working connection but the following day I got the error that IP address could not be obtained

I have turned off both routers by have the same issue

Any solutions would be greatly appreciated

Try changing the AP to 196.168.2.1. This will eliminate conflicts with the Viasat routerĀ
