I'm having some trouble setting up a DLink DI-624 wireless router to act as simple AP in my wired network. Has anyone managed to get something like this going? Here's my current setup and the results I'm seeing:
I have a Smoothwall box connecting two subnets to the internet. The first (192.168.1.0/24) is my (fully wired) LAN. The second subnet (192.168.2.0/24) consists of the DLink router connecting two laptops, one wired (A) and one wireless (B). DHCP is handled by the Smoothwall box, and is turned off on the DLink router. The router is connected via LAN port to the smoothie (no WAN connection).
When I connect A to the DLink router, everything works fine. It gets an IP from the smoothie and can access the internet. With B, the wireless connection works, it gets an IP from the smoothie, but can't ping anything other than A (A can also ping B).
Now, if I ping the DLink router or B itself from either the smoothie or any machine on the 192.168.1.0/24 subnet, B suddenly gains acces to the internet. And this continues to work (I suppose until the lease expires on its IP). I get the same behavior if I completely eliminate A from the setup.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
