D-Link WBR2310 Access Point settings /exsisting Router Speedstream 6520 (BELL Internet)

Presently installed and working Speestream 6520 Router with wireless enabled. Static IP's setup. Want to install another PC in another room using the D-LinkWBR2310 as an ACCESS Point. Cannot get the D-Link to see the Speedstream. I tried to use the FILTERS in the wireless settings on the Speedstream and ALLOW only the MAC address from the D-Link , did not work for me. Can the STATIC IP's be in the same Range ? The IP of the SPEEDSTREAM is 192.168.1.3.  The IP of the D-link is 192.168.1.5. The PC in the new room is connected to the LAN of the Dlink.

Are you trying to connect them using a cable or are you trying to configure a wireless bridge?

I guess that's what you call a BRIDGE. The DSL modem Router works with , lets call it PC-1 , connected to the LAN port with a Static address. I would like to have a network connection on lets call it PC-2 on another room (80 feet away) . I had connected the LAN connection of PC-2 to the LAN port of the D-link (option ACCESS point selected) hope to connect wireless to the Speedstream Router/Modem.

Hmmm... Sorry about that!  I didn't receive an email message that you wrote a previous response.  Even went through deleted items.  Sorry again!

Anyhow, on both routers (yes, the DSL modem is usually a router) there is an internal IP address and an external IP address.

     ISP
       |
       |
DSL Modem External IP Address (Public address assigned by ISP)
   DSL Modem
DSL Modem Internal IP Address (Configured by ISP.  Usually cannot be changed)
       |
       |
D-Link External IP Address (usually assigned by DSL modem)
   D-Link WAP
D-Link Internal IP Address (usually assigned by default from manufacturer)
       |
       |
Workstation IP Address


Disconnect the access point and then connect the workstation directly to the DSL modem.  Go to a command line and issue the command "ipconfig /all" (without the quotes).  What is the workstation's IP address and what is the default gateway?

Whatever network is being used in this configuration cannot be used by the D-Link Access Point.  If they are both using the same network portion of the IP address, then the D-Link will not know where to send the packets and they will be dropped.

What I mean is that if you connect the workstation directly to the DSL modem and it gets an IP address of 192.168.1.x, then your D-Link router needs to be configured to use a different network subnet, like 192.168.10.x.
