Router Configuration in "Wireless Client" Mode

Hi there, who knows if it is possible to configure a DI-524 wireless router to be able to work NOT as access point but as wireless CLIENT? The idea is to be able to connect WIRELESS (!) a small home LAN to an external wireless access point. Rem.: My old D-Link router DWL-900AP+ works pretty good in this mode! Thanks in advance! yacc

Re: Router Configuration in "Wireless Client" Mode

Hi, If I understand you right, what you want to do is to make the DI-524 as a repeater, i.e. receive from the "external wireless access point" and re-broadcast to your "small home wireless LAN". Unfortunately, no. D-Link made it a point not to enable repeater mode in the DI-524 model (firmware has no support for wireless distribution service). Other than your old DWL-900AP+, one other model they have that can do this is the DWL-G710 but only in WiFi and not in the Ethernet port. On some other brands of similar feature models, the original manufacturer's firmware may be replaced with an open source firmware with more features enabled. An example is the LinkSys' WRT54G and the replacement firmwares by Sveasoft and another named DD-WRT. Hope this be of some information to you. Post back should you require additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: DI-524 Configuration as "Client"

It's correct, exactly this is the point. The wireless router (DI-524) should realize the wireless connection between my switched LAN and the external access point only. This mode is called "wireless client" mode and is unfortunately no more supported by the DI-524 firmware. :-( Now I'm looking for an another (maybe open source) firmware for my router. Thx!

Well.. i try connecting through the but i wont get through to the config site

What do you mean??? the password do not work??? the configuration page do not appear???

First is your computer is connected to the DI-524 with a wire??? or not???, there could be a 1000 things that can prevent you to reach the configuration page of the router....

Check network connectivity first (wires, IP address, etc...) never try to configure a wireless router from the wireless connection, (always from the wired connections)

Using DI-524, can't find the wireless network


Have you properly configured the web based Wireless configurations of the router? Also check WLAN IP configuration of your laptop. Configure WLAN IP configuration to DHCP and try again.

Want to know the pre shared key

If you don't know your pre shared key or forgotten it. You need to access the configuration page of your router and create a new network name and a sign a new network key or pre shared key. Create the profile of your SSID/Wireless network connetion under wireless settings.

DI 524 Router Not able to connect to office VPN on Wireless

I have the same model router at home, just checked the settings, you should be able to pass through the router with a normal vpn connection.

If you use a special VPN client, like a CheckPoint Secure VPN client, the router might block it. Also you might want to ask your office's sys admin if you are not blocked by the firewall or something similar. Your office's sys admin will prolly solve your problem since he knows your work network's configuration and setup and how to connect to it.

Have D-link 704 router, can I connect the DI-524 to it also to add wireless?

Hi, I have not tried it myself with DLink but with LinkSys, yes it will work. It may take a little configuration tinkering but should work. However a few notes: 1. You should only have 1 DHCP server (both have this feature); 2. You can not have 2 identical IP address; 3. I suggest you make the 524 as the gateway and the 704 as a slave; 4. In effect you will connect 1 of the LAN port of the 524 to the WAN input of the 704; 5. You have to copy the WAN settings of the 704 to the WAN settings of the 524; 6. Or if you want to retain the 704 as the gateway, disable the identical features in the 524. I suggest you treat the 524 as a client of the 704. Hope this gives you some idea and work out for you as it did with my LinkSys. Goodluck and kind regards.
