Hi my server gives out ip addresses true DHCP of 87.XX.XXX.XXX to all the Lan connected clients.
I have a DLink Dir-300 and DIR-615 Wifi routers that give out their own ip addresses to Wifi clients of 192.168.1.XXX.

What I need is one laptop to be routed or pass-through the WIfi router to the DHCP server so it gets an ip from the server of 87.xx.xxx.xxx and not the WIfi Router DHCP address of 192.168.1.xxx

Can anyone tell me how to do this or what I am looking for thanks

Hook up ONE router as follows (new one if so required):

Hook up a LAN port on the router to the network.
Give the router a STATIC IP on the network (87..... )
Turn DHCP OFF on the router.

Now this router is an extension of 87.x.x.  for a device that attaches to it. This will work.

Hi john thanks for the reply.
Yep that is one way of doing it but then my server is giving out ip addresses from my dhcp list I want. The wifi router to give out there own ip addresses to all wifi devices but I need one only one device to get an address from the server

It is not easy (if even do-able) to pass a device through a router unimpeded when that router is setup to give all its ports a specific range of IP addresses.

The additional router is cheap compared to the black hole of trying to make a computer hooked up to a router not see the router.

John is right.  The only way you'll do it is to use a separate router for that client and put it in routing mode, or connect its LAN port to the network... or use separate SSIDs and VLANs (if your AP/network supports it).
