Good Evening:

Here's my dillema:

Network #1:
5 workstation network connected to Linksys wired router connected to modem
connected to DSL. Router is 192.168.1.1 Life is good.

Network #2:
3 workstation network connected to DI-524 wireless router. Router is
192.168.1.2 Life is good.

Added D-Link bridge and JUMBO antennae on network#1 to link 1 & 2 together.
Life is still good!

#1 can access all computers on both networks AND www. #2 can access all
computers on network but NO www. I believe it is a port setting on one of
the routers. Which router and what ports should I open?

Any ideas would be most helpful.

Thanks,

Scott

Where does the WAN port on the DI-524 go to?

What model D-Link wireless bridge(s)?

Naw. Your default route on the network #2 workstations has to point
to router #1 (192.168.1.1). My guess(tm), is that you still have the
DHCP server in the DI-524 running on Network #2. It's giving bogus
gateway addresses to the workstations on Network #2.

I suggest you remove the DI-524 completely. Use the unspecified model
D-Link trasnparent bridge(s) as they were intended to be used. Since
it's a bridge, not a router, the bridges know NOTHING about IP
addresses and such. Just make sure that broadcast traffic is enabled
to pass across the bridge. If not, then the computahs on Network #2
cannot get IP addresses from the unspecified model Linksys router DHCP
server on Network #1.

D-Link Bridge: DWL-G810
Linksys Router: befsr81 (DSL Enabled)
D-Link DI524 WAN port is EMPTY.

Thanks in advance.
