I am trying to use a Belkin F5D7230-4 router as an access point. I
have a D-Link DI-524 Wireless-G router as my main wireless router. I
want to connect the Belkin router wireless-ly to the D-Link router so
that the connection looks like this:
Cable Modem <--> DI-524 <--> Belkin F5D7230-4 -> Wired comps
So, basically, I want to connect a few wired devices to the Belkin
The DI router has a MAC address filtering, and I have put in the WAN
MAC address of Belkin into it (I have also tried with WLAN/LAN MAC
address of the Belkin router). Next I have followed the directions in
this page: http://forums.anandtech.com/messagev...readid=1513386
Although the page talks about linking a D-Link to a LinkSys, I thought
they would be similar, but things are not working.
This is all what I have done:
1. I have put the WAN MAC address of Belkin into DI-524. I have also
assigned a static address of 192.168.0.190 to the Belkin MAC in
DI-524. The DI-524 is set up to distribute IPs from
192.168.0.100-192.168.0.199 in DHCP.
The remaining are for Belkin:
2. In Belkin, I have matched the SSID, channel and security (actually
no security right now since I use MAC filtering) with those of DI-524.
3. Next I clicked on 'LAN Settings' and assigned 192.168.0.190 as the
IP Address, and 255.255.255.0 as the Subnet Mask. Also I set the DHCP
server as ON and set the IP pool from 192.168.0.200-250.
4. In 'Connection Type', I have left it to 'Dynamic'. (I played with
'Static' as well, with setting the same IP address, 192.168.0.190 as
the WAN and setting up 192.168.0.1 as the gateway - no use).
5. In 'DNS', I am using '192.168.0.1' as the DNS address.
6. In 'Channel and SSID', I have matched the channel and SSID. I have
left the 'Broadcast SSID' to OFF, Protedted Mode to 'OFF' and 802.11e
QoS to 'OFF'.
7. Disabled security.
That's pretty much it. In the Belkin router front page, it says, in
NAT enabled, Firewall Settings Enabled, Security Disabled.
I am sure this configuration must have been done by somebody. I have
read quite a few success stories similar to this, but haven't this
this configuration. Can anyone help me out with what I am missing?
