If it's a link you are attempting with gear you have now, showing your airlink info, and screen shots will gather a lot more help on this site than being overly vague.

Hi Mike,
From a configuration perspective, the diagram below will work nicely.

Restore both ends of the PtP to factory default values, then configure as shown. Once you have them working, add things like WPA2-AES encryption, changing your SSID (both ends need to be the same) and changing your administration password.

I hope this is helpful.

Cheers,
Gene
