Home wireless network setup issues

Hi, I'm trying to setup a home wifi network. I have had some experience in the past with this but I'm a bit rusty. My ADSL modem (netgear DG632) has an IP of I configured my wireless router (DLink DIR615) IP to The subnet masks on both are Initially I reset each device to its factory settings and then configured each of them separately and then hooked them up together. Now I can connect to the Wifi but I can't access my router's setup page after everything is configured. Neither can I access my modem's setup page. How do I resolve this? What IP's do I need to assign for each of them such that I can access each device's setup page when everything is connected?

  1. In the D-Link 615 turn off the DHCP server, give it a static address of in both the D-Link and give that as a static assignment in the Netgear. Set the Netgear DHCP range from to .254 unless you have other static addresses.

    What you are doing is turning the D-Link into a wireless access point (AP), but to do that you have to configure the D-Link at a static address with the radio on, an SSID and a security key.

    To access either the D-Link or Netgear, make a wired connection and type its IP address into the connected computer's browser.
  2. This is what finally worked and I can access setup pages of both the devices.

    Both have subnet masks of

    All other connections are standard.
  3. While that will work, it creates two separate networks.
