DIR-651 Connectivity
« on: August 22, 2014, 09:31:28 PM »

Hi all.  Hopefully a simple question for the experts: I have a TP Link wired router attached to my standalone Comcast modem.  I would like to use my D-Link DIR-651 as a wireless access point in another room.  I'm running Windows 7.

I'm attempting to connect the DIR-651 to the TP Link wired router via a Powerline adapter.  I've been able to do so successfully, but am having DHCP/IP address issues.  I thought I had disabled the DHCP on the DIR-651 but still no luck.

I'm happy to attach an image of my ipconfig (if someone helps me on how), but that could be so screwed up I don't know if it adds value.  I'm sure there is more data that I can provide to help, so I'll apologize in advance for not including it.

I appreciate your help.  Help me D-Link Forum User, you're my only hope! ;)

Your linked instructions did the trick perfectly, FurryNutz.  I am now up and running.  I wish I found it beforehand and saved you the trouble.  Many thanks!
