Generally - yes it is doable.
The problem is that if you want to use your 2nd router as an access point, it has to work as a DHCP server in order to get your security settings working (MAC address filtering, WEP etc.).

What you can do is that you give your first router (192.168..1) a DHCP range from 192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.50 and your 2nd router(static 192.168.1.51) in the same subnet a range from 192.168.1.52 - 192.168.1.100. As long as they don't overlap, you should be fine.

Usually - and you're right here - you would disable DHCP on the 2nd router in order ot not create IP conflicts, but if it has to serve as a wireless access point, it is in charge of wireless security.

How to convert to access point


I assume you're talking about using a wireless router as an access point. First, you need to run a wire from on of the LAN ports the new wireless router to one of the LAN ports of the new wireless router. (The back of your router has one Internet/WAN port (often yellow or blue) and several LAN ports.) The simplest way is to use a Cat5 or Cat6 patch cable, which you can buy in any length from 1 to 300 feet. (It's possible you'll need a crossover cable, but I haven't needed one of those in years.) If you're thinking of putting them in different parts of the house, and you can't run a cable between them, then you probably can't do this. (There are devices that are capable of creating a wireless bridge, but you'd need both devices to share that capability, and it's not typical on home devices.) You could try getting a pair of devices that use your house's electrical wiring (like these http://us.dlink.com/product-category/home-solutions/connect/powerline/), but that's not always successful (you need both outlets on the same circuit, for one thing).

Second, you need to change the configuration on the old router/new access point. That box is doing a lot of things that you don't need it to do any more, but I don't bother disabling them, except for one thing: DHCP. Wireless routers are generally configured to hand out IP (network) addresses to other devices on the network (your computers, DVRs, game consoles, etc.). If you have two devices (your new wireless router and the access point you're creating) handing out network addresses, it can get messy. So you need to log into the old router and disable DHCP (which some manufacturers call "assign network addressing" or "IP address distribution" or something like that).

One other step you may need to take is to change the IP address of the new access point. Still logged into the router, find where the LAN (local) IP address is set, and change it if you can. There are 2 reasons this can be important.
1) If your access point and your new wireless router both have the same IP address, you'll get lots of problems.
2) If your access point and your new wireless router are not on the same subnet, you'll only be able to login to the access point through a wired connection (and even then you may have to change your computer's IP address to match the access point's subnet.)
You can change the access point's address to anything you want, but you need to make sure of 2 things:
1) No other device has that IP address.The easiest way to ensure this is to make the last number in the address 253. That address almost never gets used.
2) It's on the same subnet as your new wireless router. I won't get into subnetting; what you need to know for your home network is that devices on the network can only communicate with other devices whose address starts the same way. For all the home routers I've seen, it's either 192.168.0 or 192.168.1. So you need to log into your new router and see if it has the address 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 (or you could open a command window on your computer and give it an "ipconfig" command, which would show you your computer's IP address, which will have the same 3 numbers). Then login to the access point and give it the IP address 192.168.0.253 or 192.168.1.253.

In a nutshell, make sure the first 3 numbers match all the other devices on the network, and that the last number does not match any device on the network.

Good luck!

Can this be set-up wireless, and if so how ?


no it can't however it should have a 10/100Base-TX ethernet port. You should be able to plug it into a Wireless Router and be able to access it via an ethernet ip network. However you would have to set the laser fs-1118mfp printer to an appropiate IP address and subnet mask and set the router to issue DCHP to Ip addresses outside the printer range of IP addresses. So for example 192.168.0.1 router 192.168.0.2 could be assigned to printer and DHCP leases assigned to 192.168.0.10 - 192.168.0.254 using a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 for all the ip addresses. The router could communicate with laptops via wireless but each laptop would need the laptop operating system driver for the printer added and the ip address would be 192.168.0.2 for the printer. it could also be done on 10.0.0.whatever 10.0.0.1 router 10.0.0.2 printer 10.0.0.10 -10.0.0.254 DHCP server leases. If you have a ethernet network already you could just add a wireless access point to the network .

How to connect wap4410 with pc to confgure


Try disconnecting your Cisco Wap4410 from all other network devices then restart it - it will look for a DHCP server, and when it doesn't find one will choose the IP: 192.168.1.245 ---
Set the TCP/IP settings on your laptop to:
IP:192.168.1.250 / Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 / Default Gateway: 192.168.1.245 and connect your laptop ONLY to the WAP4410 using a cat5 ethernet cable ---- you should then be able to load a web config page using internet explorer and browsing to: http://192.168.1.245
-------- I've paraphrased the following info from the Cisco User Support Forum (User Juunda):
"...If you read the administrator guide it states that the WAP4410N will search for a DHCP server first, if the dhcp request times out then will it default to 192.168.1.245 this is done so with a user friendly plug and play mentality in mind. Best practice would be to give the AP a static IP of your choice and in your subnet/network so the fastest way to configure the AP out of the box is to assign a static IP on your pc/laptop in the 192.168.1.X /24 and directly connect to the WAP4410N and give the WAP a static IP, define your gateway, DNS servers and then implement it into your network..."

Hello, I am currnetly using a Belkin ADSL2+ modem with wireless G Router and have just been given a D-Link Dir-855 Xtreme N Duo router I wish to use and have been told I can buy a ADSL Modem only to...


I think there is no need to replace the ADSL2+ Router.
Belkin is fine and should work well in combination with the D-Link Router and you would get the downlink data rate up to 300Mbps.
I recommended that you use Belkin Router as ADSL Modem and Dlink to provide wireless access. (Instead of buying ADSL Modem)
So, all you have to do is : -
-Turn-off wireless signal of the Belkin modem.
-Connect the Dlink Router to the Modem (Belkin) through CAT6 Cable.
-Configure the Dlink Router, Secure it and Enjoy 300Mbps Data Rate.

(In this way your Belkin will serve as ADSL Modem and Dlink would be the wireless router)

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Need basic step-by-step instructions on how to install my router.


To Configure the Router with Internet Access
Connect to one of the wireless router/access point's LAN Ethernet ports, turn off its DHCP server, and give the wireless router a static IP on your LAN:
  1. Connect a PC directly to a LAN port on the wireless router with an Ethernet cable.
  2. Power on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Reboot the PC.
  4. Log in to the wireless router though a browser. (Usually 192.168.1.1, with User Name = admin and Password = password, unless you changed them from the defaults).
  5. Go to the LAN IP menu and disable the wireless access point’s DHCP server by unchecking Use router as DHCP server.
  6. Select LAN IP, and change the IP to 192.168.1.99.
  7. Click Apply to save the settings. You will lose the connection to the wireless router/access point , since its IP changed.
  8. Log in to the wireless router/access point with the URL: http://192.168.1.99
  9. Connect one of the wireless router's Local (LAN) ports to your existing network.
This completes the wireless router/access point configuration.
  • You can now log in to the wireless router/access point at its new address of http://192.168.1.99 and configure wireless features such as WEP and Access Control List
  • UPnP, DMZ, Port Forwarding, and Port Triggering are not used on the wireless router/access point, and it doesn't matter how they are configured.
  1. Configure the LAN IP address to be within the same subnet as your PCs.
    • Take care not to use an IP address already being used.
    • Limit the number of addresses in the DHCP range and assign an IP address outside of the range to the router you want to use as the Access Point.
  2. Disable DHCP on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Connect one of the LAN ports on the wireless router/access point to a LAN port on the Router.
  4. Configure the SSID and any security settings on the wireless PCs to match the wireless router/access point's SSID and security settings.
a. SSIDs must be the same on all wireless devices. (These are case-sensitive: netGEAR is not the same as NETGEAR.)
b. Tip: Make sure the wireless PCs can connect before configuring WEP, WPA-PSK, or other wireless encryption.

If you are in a network, you need to have a thing called IP address which is usually assigned by a DHCP server or a wireless access point.If DHCP Server is not available in your case then you need to configure evreything manually.If DHCP server is available then you don't need to configure anything.Just search for the WI_FI signal and connect with it.

For manually configuring Wireless Network Setting

Go to control panel and click "network and Sharing Center", click Change Adapter settings" Right Click on the wireless adapter, Select "properties", click on "Internet Protocol version 4(TCP/IPv4)".

Select now use the followinf IP address,

Manually fill the IP address : 
                       Subnet mask :
                       Default Gateway: 

Select "Use the following DNS address "

Manually fill Preferred DNS address:
                Alternate DNS address:

For example :                           IP address               : 192.168.0.10
                       Subnet mask               : 255.255.255.0
                       Default Gateway           :192.168.0 1  

                    Preferred DNS address    :218.248.234.117
                     Alternate DNS address   :218.248.136.142

IP address is needed for communications between devices.
subnet mask is needed for identifying your Network Address Node.
Default Gateway is usually your Router or Wi-Fi access point IP Address.

DNS address for resolving domain name(mostly for Internet browsing)

Hope you can connect it now.
HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Check in your router to see if your router is set up to be a DHCP Server. If your router and adsl are both set up to be DHCP servers, sometimes they will fight with each other and some computers seem to have problems getting adresses from this kind of setup. Make sure that only one is set up to give out adresses, then check on your second computer to make sure that it is set to obtain adress automaticaly. If someone has set a manual adress in that computer that is not on the same subnet as the router, they will not comunicate. If this does not solve your problem, try putting in manual adresses into both computers: IE 192.168.1.2, subnet mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway 192.168.1.1 in the first, and 192.168.1.3 in the second with the same subnet and default gateway,

DI-524 wired/wireless access point


Just for fun, make the router give out IP addresses starting at 192.168.0.101 forward. Configure the AP at 192.168.0.2 with no DHCP (the host will give out the addresses), a netmask of 255.255.255.0, and a gateway of 192.168.0.1. Now, let the laptop find DHCP, or give it a 192.168.0.x address where x is greater than 2 but less than 101.

How lucky is that?

Can I use a D-Link DI 634M as an access point?


Sure you can! As you can with any wireless router pretty much.

1. Assign the new router (AP) to an IP on your subnet that's not your existing router's IP... i.e. 192.168.0.2
2. Disable the DHCP server on the "AP"
3. Create a new wireless network on the "AP"
4. Plug your existing network/router into a LAN port

DO NOT USE THE WAN PORT

Voila! You have an access point!
