Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
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.
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.
