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.

Password protect wireless access


You'll need to access the administrator web page for your router, and then set a security key (password) for wireless users.

Problem with WIndows 7 and DI-524 router


You need to consider the router as being the destination and your PC's the source. This means your computer connects to the internet via your router. The router contiually broadcasts its SSID (network name) and when it receives a query from a device checks to see if the device is set to the same SSID. The network created by the router should be detected by your PC's. which displays the detaiuls on your screen. All you need to do is to selct your network from those displayed and click"connect". You will be asked to supply your WEP (network key) and you're connected. The same goes for any other device you may wish to connect, including iPhones and game consoles.

DI 524 Frequent Wireless Network Loss


Try changing the channel of your router ex (channel 1-6-11). Since you upgrade the firmware of your router you need to reset it to factory default and reconfigure everything so the new firmware will take effect.

DI-524 Wireless


Yes you can, it's easy.

1. Just connect one of the LAN ports of the DI-524 to a LAN port of your other router. Leave the DI-524 WAN port empty.
2. Disable the DHCP server on your DI-524, your other router will be the DHCP server.
3. Assign a static IP address to you DI-524, different from your other router's. Example, if your other router has 192.168.2.1, you may assign 192.168.2.4. Make sure that the IP address you assign is outside the DHCP range configured in your other router and that the subnet mask is identical on both.

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.
