If you're correct about no LAN needed, that helps a bit. It did work fine with LAN. Now, do I need AP populated and Enabled (checked) in the Console for basic operation? I always know it's not working when router 192.168.0.103 disappears in Console, Settings. And wireless in laptop tray shows Omega-xxxx "No Internet, Secured" instead of "Connected, Secured". This is of right now. I use PuTTY for a terminal. It did work fine for a few weeks, then I did something? I know I'm jumping around. Better stop here.
