wireless G router plugged into gigabit switch -- not working

    Set up is as follows:

    Motorola Surfboard cable modem >>
    Motorola VT1000 voice terminal adapter (this is for Vonage, but it's also a
    SMC GS8 gigabit switch >>
    2 computers connected to switch via Ethernet (work fine)
    and D-Link DI-524 wireless G router connected to switch.

    The purpose of the D-Link is to provide wireless access to my network.

    I cannot view the setup page of the D-Link adapter from any computer.
    However, if I connect a computer directly to a (vacant) port on the D-Link
    router, then I can access the set up page (192.168....).

    Questions: How should I configure the wireless router? With a static IP
    address? Any sort of special settings I need to keep in mind?

    Thanks in advance,

  2. Hi
    Since you have already a router you have to configure the D-Link as a Switch
    with an Access Point.
