    Hi , I hope someone can point me in the right direction:

    My broadband is from 3 mobile via a Huawei E585- works fine only problem is this device is limited to 5 wireless clients.
    In trying to get around this I am using a Linksys WET54G Wireless client adapter backed via ethernet into a DLINK DWL2100AP set up as an AP with DHCP- The idea is that the DLINK will act as a separate wireless LAN, serve its own clients with IP addresses and thereby these clients will not take up one of the five valuable slots.
    The IP's of the devices are as follows;

    E585 IP (gateway) DHCP pool
    DWL2100AP (Ethernet port)

    Is anyone familiar with how to set up the DWL2100 as a router with its own DHCP Pool, currently I have it set up with a small pool in the same subnet as the rest of the network with the gateway set to the IP of the E585, this works fine in that clients can connect to the DLINK WLAN and route through and get internet, however they do show as a client on the E585-

    I tried setting the DHCP server IP Pool on the DLINK to a different subnet (192.168.0.XXX) and the Gateway to but clients get assigned a IP but no access.

    Can anyone suggest a configuration that might work??
