Tips for a great answer:
I understand that you would like to extend the wireless coverage in your home with the DG834G. I would suggest you to configure DG834G as an access point to extend the coverage of your post office router using the below steps:
1. Connect a computer directly to DG834G on any of the four LAN ports.
2. Access the router's GUI by typing http://192.168.0.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
3. When prompted for Username and Password, please enter 'admin' for the Username and 'password' for Password.
4. Click on wireless settings in the left hand side menu Under Setup.
5. Change the network name SSID to some other name.
6. Select security options as 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)'.
7. Set the 'Authentication Type' as 'Automatic' and Set the 'Encryption Strength' as 64-bit.
8. In Key 1 type a 10 digit number.
9. Apply the settings.
Click on LAN IP setup from the left menu.
1. Change the IP address of the router from 192.168.0.1 to a free IP address in the range of the Post office router.
2. Also disable the DHCP of the router by unchecking the box for 'Use router as DHCP Server'.
3. Click apply and click ok for any popup message that arise.
4. Once the browser display some error message like CANNOT FIND SERVER, ACTION CANCELLED etc, turn off the router and restart the computer.
Now, connect the two router in the following way:
1.Connect Ethernet cable from the Lan port of the Post office router to the Lan port of the DG834G
2. Powercycle both the routers and your computer
3. You may connect other computers' directly to DG834G or wirelessly as per your requirement.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
