DI-524 One wireless connection makes others not ok

I'm fairly new to networking and wireless networking in particular so of course I've encountered a problem. I have a DI-524 at home with three computers connected to it (1 via cable, 2 wireless). I recently bought an additional Dell Inspirion 6400 laptop with Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network adapter included. My problem is that when I start up the laptop and gets connection one of my other PCs looses connection? When I disconnect my laptop the other connection works ok again. Anyone got any hints?

This is unusual, as it seems the router is allocating two pc's the same IP address. Go into your routers settings (internet browser and type the router address, eg' and look at Client DHCP list and look at the IP addresses that each pc has been given and see if two are the same, they should be one digit difference, that being the last. Also go into the properties of both your pc's wireless cards and ensure that they are set to obtain an ip address automatically.

Yes you can, it's easy.

1. Just connect one of the LAN ports of the DI-524 to a LAN port of your other router. Leave the DI-524 WAN port empty.
2. Disable the DHCP server on your DI-524, your other router will be the DHCP server.
3. Assign a static IP address to you DI-524, different from your other router's. Example, if your other router has, you may assign Make sure that the IP address you assign is outside the DHCP range configured in your other router and that the subnet mask is identical on both.

DI-524 wireless router as wireless switch

You need to disable the DHCP server on your "slave" wireless router ( the di-524 ). In D-link routers this might be called configuring it to be an "Access point".

When this happens, connecting to the second wireless router should cause your computer to obtain an IP address which is in the range of the first router (that is to say, it will use the first router's dhcp server).

You should be able have your laptop connect with an automatic IP address and have it work.
