Problem with wireless router (D-Link DI-524)

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Mike in Nebraska, Jul 14, 2008.

  1. I want to replace my SOHO router with the subject router so I can hang Guest
    AP's off of it and keep them off my LAN. Based on advice from the newsgroup, I duplicated the settings frm
    the old router, enabled DHCP on it (for the range - .191).
    The router IP is set to, and my external NIC is at
    The internal LAN is at

    Finally was able to get some network downtime to make the change in routers
    to try this out. I was unsuccessful. I am trying to use a D-Link DI-524
    wireless router, but - once connected to the SBS box and I've run CEICW, the
    WAN NIC goes through a 5-second cycle over and over - 2 seconds on/connected
    follwed by 3 seconds off/disconnected.
    I ran the ISA and SBS BPA's and didn't see anything. System logs jusdt show
    the NIC entering and exiting the connection state. I'm at a loss. Maybe
    it's that I have DHCP turned on for the wireless AP's, and it's competing
    with the SBS DHCP service?

    I put the old router back in service so I could work on this some more.

    Any idceas out there?

  2. Hi
    Best way to keep Wireless network private when providing for friends is to
    create segregated network with two Wireless routers.

  4. Here's a reply I got at on this subject.
    I'd appreciate your comments:

    "I think this issue happens because you unable to get IP address from the
    DHCP running on the router. Since you have install the ISA server, the ISA
    by default block DHCP from external network. Therefore, I suggest you
    perform the following steps:

    1. Set the DHCP on the router, to make a exclusion of IP range. For example,
    your router assigns IP 192.168.100.X. Please make the router not assign IP

    2. Then, you can set the SBS use fix IP ( by run the CEICW.

    Then, all guest wireless clients will get IP address from DHCP on the
    router, while the SBS use fix IP on external NIC to connect to the router.

    The DHCP running on SBS will only listening on internal NIC of SBS. It will
    assign another subnet (like 192.168.16.X) to internal cable or wireless

    I hope these steps will give you some help.

    Thanks and have a nice day!
