I have my router as my access point. How do I create managed wireless LAN to be able to communicate with my another laptop?DEVICE=wlan0BOOTPROTO=dhcpONBOOT=noHWADDR=00... [by shuhei]

I have a Wireless Access Point device (http://www.szedup.com/show.aspx?id=1706), which I am planning to put into BeagleBoard-xM, in order to achieve wireless communication (LAN). However, I can't find it's IP address. I mean, I have to know it's IP address in order to connect with BeagleBoard-xM via a terminal emulator.
For the moment, I have this device connected via Ethernet on my router.
Ubuntu 12.04 with proprietary Boardcom STA Wireless driver installed
BCM43224 802.11a/b/g/n wireless card
TP-LINK TD-W8101G 54Mbps Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router
Yesterday before I went to sleep, I still connect to my wireless access point, this morning when I start my laptop I don't see it in the list - there are some neighbors listed but not mine.
The WLAN is green, with my old N
I got mine working with hostapd + dhcpcd + radvd. In my case, the access point is also the router, so dhcpcd gets an ia_pd (delegated prefix) from my ISP and configures the lan interface with an address from that prefix.
I need help with setting the D-Link DAP-1150 Wireless Access Point. The situation is that I have a network with static IP assigned for every machine and proxy server running. Because of that, I only have one IP address for my laptop, which is connected via Ethernet (10.33.2.40, subnet 255.255.252.0 gateway 10.33.0.1).
While I was doing research on wireless connection limits, I stumbled upon this question. Zypher's answer seems to suggest connection capacity benefits of wireless access points over wireless routers. Is there actually a connection capacity benefit to using a pure access point?
