Ive got a Zywall 5 that takes care of all my wired network (running through a dell gigaswitch)
Then I have a Dlink DIR-655 taking care of my wireless network.

At the moment they are setup on two seperate subnets (192.168.0.x and 192.168.1.x)

This gives me a few problems since certain for different reasons cant communicate across networks.

So Id like to basically have the dlink act as an AP (ie: not router) on the Zywall network, so all ip adresses on the network will be on the same subnet.

But as far as I can see the dir-655 does not have any setup options, to make it act as a dummy ap?

Id love to have some suggestions as to how to approach this.

kind regards

Disable DHCP on the D-Link and connect the network cable from the Zywall to a LAN port on the D-Link.

Change the IP address to be in the 192.168.0.x range. Are you sure you used a LAN port on the D-Link? Do you get an IP address when connected to the D-Link?

yes. but it seems the dlink insists on wanting to act as a router..?
