Wireless router internet access issues

D-Link DIR 615 wireless router - connected to Cisco switch inside our network.  

I can connect to the wireless network (SSID) but cannot connect to the internet on a wireless connection.

If I connect on a wired connection to a LAN port on the DIR-615 I'm fine - connect to the internet without issue which implies my network configuration on the unit is correct.

What am I missing on the wireless side?

Are you running DHCP from the wireless side?

when you connect via wireless can you ping the D-Link?

DHCP is disabled on the router - address assignments should be from our firewall.  And no I cannot ping the D-link when using the wireless connection

Do an ipconfig (ifconfig) and see if you are pulling an address if not then try a static address.  And like the other poster stated ensure you are not using the WAN port to plug into your switch.  If so then the dlink is trying to nat

Not using Wan port

Switched IP address of router to be outside of firewall / dhcp range

Still getting exactly the same results - connect fine over wired; do not connect to internet over wireless

What does a wireless computer show for the same?
