I have a DI-524 wireless /wire router. It connects my two computers with each other and also the Internet. Every thing works fine except that the signal strenght is low and I also bought a Sqeezebox to my stereo. I have an other DI-524 wich I consider using as a second transmitter, simply by connecting it to a free output on the first router. That works fine. I did set the second router up with a different ip-adress (192.168.0.2). The problem is that I can not get access from my computer to the router via the first one, it has the original ip-adress. The Sqeezebox finds the internet but not the slimserver on my computer, that is two routers away.

What is it that I have missed? :)

What you did here will only work for internet access. Basically you setup up two separate networks, what you want to do is setup one network. I think what you're wanting is to set the second router up as a bridge to the first router while also being a repeater. I'm not sure if D-Link supports this with their firmware, but I've got the same thing setup here at my home, although I don't have D-Links.

You might want to look through the help menu or manual for how to setup a bridge/repeater.


You could also get some bigger antennas for you wireless router, that would help with the signal, but would take the second router out of the equation.

Thank you Gravity G

Yes, I assume your are right, also having found others with much the same question it seems like a new antenna might be a faster solution. Thanks again
