I am stuck in the final step in getting wireless working at my parent's place. This is what I have so far.
- One Standard XP PC.
- One Standard XP laptop.
- One Huawai 882 ADSL modem.
- One DLink DI 514.
- Not much free time.
Internet connection is through the Huawai 882. I have set this to PPPoE and the internal IP Address to 192.168.1.90.
If I fix the IP on the pc and laptop to say 192.168.1.3 and 192.168.1.4 and wire them to the ADSL, I am able to connect to the external world.
Now, I wired the DI 514 to the ADSL modem and set it up as follows.
WAN settings: static IP: 192.168.1.2 netmask: 255.255.255.0 gateway: 192.168.1.90 primary dns: 192.168.1.90 MTU 1500 (default value. left it at that)
LAN settings: IP Address: 192.168.0.1 netmask: 255.255.255.0 domain name:
and I switch on the DHCP server.
-> My PC is still connecting using the ADSL modem. So, it's on the192.168.1.x network. That's able to connect to the external world.
-> My laptop, if wired to one of the spare ports on the DLink is able to connect to the external world. This is in the 192.168.0.x network, of course. This is what I am using to post now.
-> My laptop, if wireless, is unable to connect to the external world. This is in the 192.168.0.x network. I am able to ping both the internal and external network interfaces on the DLink (192.168.0.1 and192.168.1.2) and the internal interface on the ADSL Modem (192.168.1.90) but no external sites.
-> I am also able to resolve IP address from common names if I do a nslookup.
Any suggestions on what I am missing out? I would greatly appreciate any help as I promised my mom that she could use my laptop from the other end of the house. :-)
