d-link 524 Wireless Router as ap?
Posted on 2006-03-22
I'm trying to connect the 524 to an existing network.
The WAN settings are :
static ip: 10.164.2.18
Then I assigned the LAN an unused IP address: 10.164.2.19
I enabled the DHCP server with the ranger 10.164.2.20 - 30 (I need the DHCP server because there is no other DHCP server, the network admin assigns all computers IP addresses manually)
I connect to the wireless network but I can't get out the the internet. When I do an ipconfig I see:
IP address (my laptop): 10.164.2.20 (so DHCP server is working)
subnet : 255.255.240.0 (right)
gateway : 10.164.2.19 (no!!)
The problem is the gateway, it should be 10.164.1.1 but instead it is the LAN address.
I did try plugging in to the WAN to see if that would work, but I kept getting the same gateway. However I didn't do a ipconfig/release. Although I did repair my wireless connection.
I can't get out to the internet because the gateway is not right, it needs to be the main router ip address. Which means I think I need to use this as an access point. I just don't know how to do this.
Can anybody can offer any insight?
