Generally - yes it is doable.
The problem is that if you want to use your 2nd router as an access point, it has to work as a DHCP server in order to get your security settings working (MAC address filtering, WEP etc.).

What you can do is that you give your first router (192.168..1) a DHCP range from 192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.50 and your 2nd router(static 192.168.1.51) in the same subnet a range from 192.168.1.52 - 192.168.1.100. As long as they don't overlap, you should be fine.

Usually - and you're right here - you would disable DHCP on the 2nd router in order ot not create IP conflicts, but if it has to serve as a wireless access point, it is in charge of wireless security.

This will make your wireless link preferred, if the link fails the OSPF adjacency will fail and routing will fallback to the other link.

You should ideally have some /32 loopback interfaces so the router will use this as the OSPF RID, or manually set the RID under the OSPF process.

Wers my wep key, need 2 getmy ps3 onlineagen and forgotten the code, thanks, if u can not help is there a number i can call?


If you have a working Windows wireless machine, you can extract the key from the Windows machine and use it on your other devices.
Download this: http://download.cnet.com/WirelessKeyView/3000-2092_4-10614187.html
and then run it.

You can learn the WEP or WPA key in use which you can then use on other devices.
If there are no other working wireless devices, you will need to log on to your access point and reset the password there. The instructions for that depend on your access point.

Internet connection is fine when my PC's connected directly to the modem. The router connects fine. But won't let the wired PC online. Under the "status" bar the "router" tab won't show the correct...


here are times when there is a need to connect a wired computer to an access point in order to set it up. To connect a wired PC to a Linksys access point, follow the steps below. Step 1:
Connect the PC to the Ethernet port located at the back of the access point.

Step 2:
Assign a static IP address on the computer. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: To assign a static IP address using Mac, click here.
The Access Point can be configured in four different modes:
  • Access Point
  • Access Point Client
  • Wireless Repeater
  • Wireless Bridge
The Access Point mode allows wireless clients to connect to the access point and routes traffic between the wireless and wired interface. Use this mode to create a standard wireless Infrastructure network. For instructions, click here.
The Access Point Client mode allows this device to act as a wireless client. You can connect a wired PC to the access point to connect to a wireless router or another access point wirelessly. You can enter the MAC address of the Access Point or use the Site Survey button to select the Access Point you want to connect.
NOTE: The WAP54G will only communicate with another WAP54G when set to the Access Point Client. For instructions, click here.

Can't configure dir-600 after enabling access point only


Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.1.1
or
http://192.168.2.1
or
http://192.168.0.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
If you are still not able to access it with above ip then press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router.Then you can access it with 1 of the above ip.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Need basic step-by-step instructions on how to install my router.


To Configure the Router with Internet Access
Connect to one of the wireless router/access point's LAN Ethernet ports, turn off its DHCP server, and give the wireless router a static IP on your LAN:
  1. Connect a PC directly to a LAN port on the wireless router with an Ethernet cable.
  2. Power on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Reboot the PC.
  4. Log in to the wireless router though a browser. (Usually 192.168.1.1, with User Name = admin and Password = password, unless you changed them from the defaults).
  5. Go to the LAN IP menu and disable the wireless access point’s DHCP server by unchecking Use router as DHCP server.
  6. Select LAN IP, and change the IP to 192.168.1.99.
  7. Click Apply to save the settings. You will lose the connection to the wireless router/access point , since its IP changed.
  8. Log in to the wireless router/access point with the URL: http://192.168.1.99
  9. Connect one of the wireless router's Local (LAN) ports to your existing network.
This completes the wireless router/access point configuration.
  • You can now log in to the wireless router/access point at its new address of http://192.168.1.99 and configure wireless features such as WEP and Access Control List
  • UPnP, DMZ, Port Forwarding, and Port Triggering are not used on the wireless router/access point, and it doesn't matter how they are configured.
  1. Configure the LAN IP address to be within the same subnet as your PCs.
    • Take care not to use an IP address already being used.
    • Limit the number of addresses in the DHCP range and assign an IP address outside of the range to the router you want to use as the Access Point.
  2. Disable DHCP on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Connect one of the LAN ports on the wireless router/access point to a LAN port on the Router.
  4. Configure the SSID and any security settings on the wireless PCs to match the wireless router/access point's SSID and security settings.
a. SSIDs must be the same on all wireless devices. (These are case-sensitive: netGEAR is not the same as NETGEAR.)
b. Tip: Make sure the wireless PCs can connect before configuring WEP, WPA-PSK, or other wireless encryption.

Can I use a D-Link DI 634M as an access point?


Sure you can! As you can with any wireless router pretty much.

1. Assign the new router (AP) to an IP on your subnet that's not your existing router's IP... i.e. 192.168.0.2
2. Disable the DHCP server on the "AP"
3. Create a new wireless network on the "AP"
4. Plug your existing network/router into a LAN port

DO NOT USE THE WAN PORT

Voila! You have an access point!

Cannot upload pictures to an ftp site


You would open ports 20 and 21, and that would allow FTP transfer in passive mode. (Windows DOS FTP client does NOT do passive mode - so don't use that for testing)

D-LINK DI-514 LAN Ports not working


  1. Connect a cable from your PC to one of the four plugs. Not the WAN port.
  2. Setup the wireless the way you want it.
  3. Then give this router a different IP, like 192.168.0.2
  4. Then you have to disable the DHCP server in the router (keep in mind now you have to set your desktop or laptop that is conencted to it to a static IP to still communicate with the router)
  5. Once this is done just plug you existing network into one of the four ports. Not the WAN port.
  6. It will now act as a wirelessa access point.
Althoug this is doable it is not recommended as this router is a pile of **** and the wireless is crappy.

I would suggest a dedicated wireless access point.
