Hi there

I am staying with friends at the moment and they have a Telecom broadband connection supplied via a D-Link ADSL Router (DSL 502-T). This only allows one PC to be connected to the Internet, so I have a Netgear WGR614v6 Router that in theory I would like to hook up to the D-Link, allowing a wireless network that I can connect my laptop to. Is this possible without a lot of fuss?

Cheers

Mike

If you just plug it into the LAN port it'll work with DHCP enabled but double NAT will occur.

They really should replace the modem, if they've been a long term Telecom customer and have no intention of leaving they could get one for free.

Check that the IP address of the Netgear is different to the D-Link.

Then you need to turn DHCP off on the Netgear.

Then connect the two routers with a network cable. The D-Link will then do DHCP to wireless clients and they will get the right gateway for the internet.

Default address of the 502T is 10.1.1.1 so set the Netgear to, say, 10.1.1.2.

Agree with sbiddle - they should get Telecom to send them a new one. The 502T is very old and doesn't do ADLS 2+.

The Netgear does not have to be on the same subnet as the D-Link. All that matters is that the IP is different.

What sort of problem will he have if the 502T hands out a 10.1.1.n address to the OP's computer that is connected to a different subnet on the router?

No problem so long as the D-Link is doing the DHCP for the network.
