Firstly, this is how my setup works:-

ADSL MODEM
to
DLINK wireless router di-624 rev c
to
External Aerial
to
External aerial
to
DLINK access point 2000ap+ in client mode
to
DLINK wireless router di-624 rev b
to
My computer finally.

The problem is my computer can see all the devices, log on into their html
settings pages, including the ADSL modem, but i cannot gain access to the
internet.

The 2nd wireless router (rev B) has dhcp disabled, thus leaving my computer
to log on with a static IP set in TCP/IP in windows xp.

How can i gain access to the net?? Please help me,

Thankfully

Ok, lets give this a try

#1 Router that *should* nat 192.168.0.something. I don't remember the
DLink defaults, but it could be something like 192.168.0.227 as its
addy. ( The dlink uses the IP you get from your ISP for its IP with
another for the gateway at the ISP -> x.x.x.1 usually.

Is this setup as a BRIDGE?

#2 Router should get an IP, netmask, gateway, and dns from the #1
router. You can verify this in the menu setup.

Your computer should get a different network from #2 router. If it
doesn't you won't get out. You may have to manually set the routers
LOCAL IP to something different than the local network of #1 Router (
use 192.168.100.something. Your computer's gateway addy should point to
the IP address of #2 Router with the proper netmask.

Why do you have #2 router by the way? If you are only connecting ONE
computer, you don't need #2. If you have multiple computers attached to
#2, disregard that unless the bridge is capable of dealing with multiple
MAC on the local side. Then you would get the IP addy from #1 router.

Usually a DSL modem is a bridge. Are you sure that it isn't a
Bridge/Router combo? In this neck of the woods, verizone ships Routers
( most of the time ), and usually they work out of the box with no user
intervention.

If you can only bride ONE MAC, you do need the router portion; use DHCP
as it works. In this case, you need to make sure that both routers are
not NAT'n the same networks. This setup *should* work as long as
everybody is pointing to the correct upsteam addys. I am not totally
familiar with these specific DLinks, so grant me some leeway. For
instance, lets assume that you ISP's gateway is 102.81.100.1/24 then:

dsl modem bridges #1 router dhcp wan address from ISP

#1 router wan ip -> 102.81.100.152 with 102.81.100.1 as the gw
#1 router lan ip -> 192.168.0.227/24
#1 router dhcp could be 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.11
#1 router gets dns from ISP and could be 102.81.100.2

DLINK 2000AP bridges #2 dhcp wan address ( from #1 router.

#2 router wan ip is 192.168.0.11 with 192.168.0.227 as the gw
#2 router lan ip is 192.168.100.227/24
#2 router dhcp could be 192.168.100.1 to 192.168.100.11
#2 router gets dns from #1 router -> 192.168.0.227

Computer gets dhcp addy from #2 -> say 192.168.100.11 along with
192.168.100.227 as the gateway and 192.168.100.227 as dns.

You should be able to ping both sides of each router, along with the ISP
gateway ( and the rest of the Internet ) with this setup. Confused?
Using non-routable addys gives you lots of leeway as you don't have to
break up a class C into subnets. Routing is pretty easy as long as you
follow some simple rules.
1. each network must be unique
2. each network has a default gateway
3. you can't reuse a network later down the line.

Is MAC address filtering enabled and possibly keeping your computer from
having access? Would placing the AP in bridge mode be better?

I need more than the 1 computer connected to router 2, a laptop and pocket
pc.

Would it help if i moved the access point over in building 2 so a ethernet
cable is fed to that from router 1, so the external aerial connects straight
to the back of that?? then to router 2????

If you can 'see' the #1 router and the modem, the network looks like it
is working, but not quite configured correctly.

Are you setup as below -> maybe different numbers than mine?
