This is a modification to my original post. I've given up on the EnGenius ENS500 N300. It is in the pile to be given away. I signed up for Charter Communications Internet rather than try to tap into free Internet access.
I'm new to building links, and perhaps what I'm trying to do is not possible with the ENH500. Please excuse my ignorance. The attach image shows a sketch of the envisioned system configuration. I have successfully logged into the control panel of the ENH500 from my laptop computer, selected bridge mode, and requested a "site survey" as shown on page 4-24 of the ENH500 manual. My problem .. the ENH500 does not find the 5 G Hz signal being broadcast by the Time-Warner Ubee DVW32CB modem even if given many minutes to perform the search. I know that the Ubee DVW32CB modem is broadcasting a 5 G Hz signal because I can use it to connect my iPhone to the Internet. When I log into the control panel of the DVW32CB modem, it shows my iPhone as being connected via the 5 G Hz link (see attached "access"). The Ubee DVW32CB modem is set to use "Radio wireless channel 153/80 " and MAC access control is disabled. The ENH500 was set for sensitivity = maximum distance; in fact, it was within inches of the DVW32CB modem. I am not sure the ENH500 can be configured as I have envisioned, but I would think that it would indicate the presence of the 5 G Hxz signal. What am I doing wrong? all help is appreciated.

I want to set up a SecurityPros.com CSP-4Lite CCTV camera and recording system in the garage of an apartment building. Internet access is available in an apartment unit above the garage, but it will be very difficult to run a cable from the apartment to the garage. I'd like to use an EnGenius ENS500 N300 as a wireless bridge between the SecurityPros.com CSP-4Lite CCTV camera and recording system and the ISP's modem/DHCP-server, so I don't need to run a physical cable. The ISP's 5.0 GHz WiFi signal is really strong in the location where I would position the EnGenius ENS500 N300 as a wireless bridge. The cable modem provided by the ISP, Spectrum, includes a DHCP server as well as 2.4 and 5.0 Ghz wireless access. The SecurityPros.com system interfaces with the Internet in a manner that allows remote viewing as well as remote playback of its internal video recorder. When the SecurityPros.com camera-controller is directly connected to a typical modem/DHCP-server, the modem assigns an IP address, perhaps 192.168.1.80, to the SecurityPros.com camera-controller that doesn't change over time. Assuming I set up the EnGenius ENS500 N300 with the password code to access the Spectrum modem's WiFi, and I change default IP addresses to avoid conflicts, will the EnGenius link be transparent to the Spectrum Modem and the SecurityPros.com camera controller? i.e. Will the DHCP server in the modem assign an IP address and communicate with the SecurityPros.com camera controller as if it was directly plugged into an RJ45 Eithernet port on the modem/DHCP-server.
