I've been searching for a solution but have not found the proper config that works. I would like to use the Dir615 as an access point, for wired and wireless connectivity in a workshop located 150 feet from my house, and I have an ethernet cable running that distance from my dsl modem / router from a LAN port. My DSl modem router is 192.168.2.1 .. my ip range is set to 192.168.2.10 to .254 I want to keep the same SSID and password as is set on this router on my Dir615.
On the DIR 615 I have tried several configs, I've disabled UpNp and DCHP , connected LAn port to Lan port. told to configure the DIR 615 with an ip address not in use, so I thought I'd use 192.168.2.2, however is this setting as simple as just changing the ip address within the "Network settings", or do I need to set this up within the "Internet settings"as a static IP under WAN , etc. and input gateway, dns etc.
I did have it working somewhat with simply disabling DHCP, using an existing ip address within the IP range discussed above, and using a different SSID and Password but it caused some IP conflicts with various computers and laptops. I'd like to use the same SSID
