Trying to connect wireless computers to network

Last Modified: 2016-04-12
I have a network with a PDC and twenty-five computers all hard wired.   There is no wireless connection to the network, but now it is needed.   A Netgear router was purchased to allow users to wireless users to connect to the network, but it is not happening.  The users can access the internet, but because the router is creating it's own IP addresses, it will not allow them to connect to the network and network printers.   Is there any way to get the wireless users to the network using this router?
