Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)
I want to Use my DL-514 as a passive access point for wireless... it doesn't need to create it's own subnet just pass ip requests through to the DHCP. is this doable?
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.
