Hi there,

I'm trying to get the following configuration working:

I have a D-LINK DSL-504 modem/router (wired) which my desktop is connected to.

I also have a D-LINK DI-624 wireless router attached to the DSL-504 modem. My laptop is then connected wirelessly to the DI-624.

Both the desktop and the laptop access the internet with no problem. How can I make both machines connect over a network? Doing it the through network connection wizard doesn't work.

IP addresses:
Wired router:
Wireless router:

Laptop running Windows XP Home SP2
Desktop running Windows XP Professional SP2

You need to get the wireless router set up as an access point only with an IP address in the same 10.1.1.x range as the wired router. The laptop also needs to be in the same range. I will try to find a step by step guide to help, and post back.

All you want to know about your DI-624:


Need to follow instruction on this page to pick the correct manual.

If you need the D-LINK DSL-504 modem/router, you can fine it on the D-Link pages. You might check and see if you have latest manufacturer's drivers for these while you're at it.
