Router: D-Link DI-524 Repeater: D-Link DWL-G710
I am trying to set up a repeater by getting into its web interface to choose the SSID of the router, but am having problems. I am directly connected (wired) to the repeater to access its config pages. The repeater is 192.168.0.30 and I set a static address on my laptop of 192.168.0.101 for the wired connection. I cannot access the repeater if I have both the wired connection and the client radio, or only the client radio, on at the same time.
So when it comes time to do the site survey on the repeater, I tried plugging the client radio into the laptop but of course it then loses connection to the repeater and cannot complete the survey.
What can I do to get around this problem?
