Connecting a Netgear with a Dlink routers

Guest

I have a Netgear PR614 router connected to my cable modem (and 3 desktop
computers). I want to connect my wireless Dlink 524 router to the Netgear
router to allow access to my wireless laptop.

On the Netgear I have set up the router as a DHCP server (IP address
192.168.0.1) and have a IP range set of 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.10. I have
set my desktops to obtain the IP automatically.

How do I set up the Dlink so that both will be able to access the internet.

Thanks for all of the help.

Either replace the original unwired router with the wireless Dlink or
use the Dlink as a wireless access point - you'll need to disable the
router aspect of it and just run it as a WAP. You don't want to run two
routers.

Configure the D-Link router as a wireless access point only, bypassing
its routing capabilities:

1. Connect one of its LAN ports to a LAN port on the Netgear router.
You might have to use a crossover cable or an uplink port on one of
the routers.

2. Don't connect anything to its WAN (Internet) port.

3. Disable the built-in DHCP server.

4. Assign it a static LAN IP address outside the Netgear's DHCP range,
such as 192.168.0.11 or 192.168.0.254.

I want to keep the Netgear (wired) router and added another wireless router
( I have 5 computers I want to connect 3 wired and 2 wireless). How do I
disable the router aspect of it and just run it as a WAP?

Thanks

Candie,

What you want to do is to make the DLink into a wireless hub, or WAP. That's a
fairly simple task. Please see my article:
