Can't sync Win XP to server over wireless
 
I have an ADSL modem/router to which I have connected a wireless router. I
have set up both devices as DHCP servers and have a desktop PC and laptop
connected to them. However I have a couple of problems with the setup.

1. In order to be able to access the wireless router setup screens using its
preset IP address (192.168.0.1) from the desktop PC I have to connect its
LAN cable to the wireless router. If I hook up the desktop directly to the
modem/router (192.168.1.1) the web browser cannot reach the wireless router.
Why is this? Should only the modem / router act as a DHCP server?

2. I can connect to the internet, get email, web surf and make VPN
connections from my laptop using wireless. However for some reason when
using wireless I cannot connect to the fileservers at my workplace over the
VPN connection. I can connect to the Exchange server at work (using Outlook
in both online and offline mode) but if I try to synchronize files or get at
files on the file servers everything grinds to a halt. This does not happen
if I use a LAN cable connected to the modem/router, I am able to synchronize
files and access the files without any problems.

Are these two issues indicative of an incorrect configuration of the two
devices?

Thanks...Graeme

Come on man, if you bypass the router and connect directly to the
modem/router, how do you expect to talk to the router? Also, I would not
connect a second router to the first router. what you want is an access
point.

In order to use your VPN connection, you usually have to go into the routers
firewall settings and enable VPN pass through.

Again, I suggest getting rid of the second router and get an access point.
Can the second router you have be setup as an access point?

Re: Can't sync Win XP to server over wireless
 
I had thought that at the very least I could connect to the wireless
router (a D-Link DI-514) via the modem/router using the IP address
assigned to it by the modem / router. I understand that I would not be
able to connect using the wireless routers own 192.168.0.1 address.

The D-Link setup screens for wireless refer to the device being an
access point. There are also setup screens for what are refered to as
LAN and WAN - neither of which I have touched.

The setup I have works with VPNs - up to a point. HTTP, HTTPS, SMTP
and IMAP traffic seems to get through fine (I can surf the web and
sync to Exchange over a VPN) but whatever protocols are used for
connecting to a file server and syncing files seem to be blocked. I am
using a NAT firewall on the modem / router but no software firewall on
the laptop. The firewall on the wireless router has some default rules
one of which seems to deny inbound traffic for protocol <IP (0), *>.

Re: Can't sync Win XP to server over wireless
 
ok, I have the dlink 514 in my network also. Do you have a Rev B or Rev C?

Lets get down to it.

The 514 is not able to be placed in an AP mode. it is strickly a router,
that is the reason you are unable to see your wired side.

Is there anyway to disable the router in your modem? If so I can get you up
and running 100% in my next post. I guess either way I can get you up in my
next post. But if you can disable the router on the modem it would be so
much easier.
