DI-524 wireless router as wireless switch

I have a DI-524 wireless router connected to my home network behind a DI-614 wireless router. Before you ask, the reason for this is the di-524 is connected to the di-614 in my house by a network cable run to my parents house next door so they can have wireless internet for the 3 months a year they spend here in florida, and so I can have it on my laptop when I am in the backyard next door at the pool. I can connect to the internet on my laptop from the di-524 when i use a network cable. When I connect to it wirelessly, my laptop finds the network, connects to it and gets full coverage (all bars are green) but I can not get to the internet on it. Again, I can get to the internet when plugged in to the di-524, but not wirelessly even though the wireless connection is established. I have changed the ip address of the 524 so it is unique on the network. And I have the network cable plugged into a numbered port on the back of the router, not the wan port (so it can be used as a switch). Any ideas would be a huge help. I would really like to get this to work wirelessly so my parents don't have to plug in.
Thanks

    I got it working. What I did was change the WAN settings to static ip and used the ip address of my primary router for the ip address, the isp gateway address and the primary dns address. I used 255.255.255.0 for the subnet mask. I also disabled both the dhcp server and static dhcp. now I can connect either wired or wireless.

If your 614 DHCP is issuing and Ip of say, 192.168.1.xxx, set the static WAN IP of the 524 to 192.168.2.1. using the same subnet and DNS as the 614. Set the LAN for the 524 to one in the 614 range, but outside the 614 DHCP range, i.e. 192.168.1.150.
Set the Super G mode to Super G without turbo, in the wireless section. You should be good to go. Reboot from the wall, i.e. modem, wait 2 min, fire up the 614, wait two min, fire up the 524, and you should be good to go. Use the same setup, but have a 624 intead of the 614.

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.

How can I connect the ps3 to a wireless router di-524?


First, you need to configure the wireless adapter inside the D-Link router:
* set an SSID -- the "name" of your network
* set an encryption-level -- use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* set a password for your network.

Then, enter the SSID and the password on the PS3, to connect to your wireless network.

Cant connect my laptop wirelessly...


Try to reconfigure your wireless network on your DI-524.

To access the configuration page of your router by Default type in on the address bar 192.168.0.1. On the login page by default the Username is admin and leave the Password blank.

If inside the the configuration page of the router

>Click Home
> Click on WIRELESS located on the left side and you will have the wireless setting of your network
> Change the wireless network name
> Under security choose either WEP or WPA -PSK for this type of router.
> Type in your new network key (also know as Passphrase of Key1).

For WEP use 0 to 9 Number or A to F character and it should be exactly 10 characters.
For WPA-PSK you can use alpha numeric from 0 to 9 and from A to Z. The minimun character would be 8.

> Click on apply
> Click on continue.
Try accessing your wireless network first using your wireless computer. If you are connected to your wireless network try connecting to the Internet.

Di-524 setup


Reset the DI-524 to its factory default settings and restore the other devices on your network to their default settings. You may do this by pressing the Reset button on the back of the unit. You will lose the current configuration settings. Also be sure to unplug the modem the plug it back in afterwards, a reboot of all devices on network maybe good idea also.

DI-524 One wireless connection makes others not ok


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 192.168.1.1)' 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.
