All works, but there is warning:
If you have many wireless gadgets : cordless phone, Wifi modem, 3 laptops, 2 cells connected to your modem and 2 tablets connected as well, wifi printer, video streaming and the EZ-B v4 in the middle, it will not work.
Antek12, I see from the email you sent me, you are running Avast anti-virus. There is a known issue with Avast that is included in the tutorial I linked.

I have over 30 devices connected to my network now. I also have cordless phones, RF devices throughout the house, bluetooth devices throughout the house, speakers everywhere... basically a higher than average level of electromagnetic radiation and the network has a lot of traffic 24/7.

I have no issues connecting EZ-Bs to the network.

Do you have access to the router that handles your network? If possible assign your EZB to it's own static IP number in the router. If this router cant assign static IP's you may need a newer router. Please read this thread for more info:
How I resloved my Connection issues
South Africa
Its sorted. For programing I use my other laptop, For play I use Nexus 7 and for connection from outside I use m server (with windows home server 2012). It may look complicated but it works.
South Africa
Correction my server is with Windows Home Server 2011 Vail ( I am planning to replace it with Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials)
Even with setting static IP's (actually, I think made worse) there is a problem with the EZ-B in client mode. It is not disabling (or fully disabling) the DHCP Server when switching from AP to Client mode, so if you have more than one EZ-B, or if you have other 2.4ghz WiFi devices (802.11n or 802.11g) when they request an IP address from the network, all currently running EZ-B's will send a DHCP offer, along with your router.

This can absolutely cause an issue. Other devices may not gain internet access and the EZ-B's that start after the first one may not get the IP address you are expecting.

(I have confirmed this with Wireshark captures. Whenever a device on the 802.11n network requests an IP address, all of the EZ-B's respond with offers. This is very bad for a network, and could explain all the strange symptoms people have reported with network problems, particularly when there are multiple EZ-B's except for the known HP/Compaq issue in AP mode, and the Avast issue in all modes).
