D-Link Wireless Routers for Home and Small Business > COVR-C1203-US

Ethernet not seeing WAP

gkala:
NOOB network question.  I have the COVR-1203 and it is connected and working fine.  Problem is that my wireless devices are picking up 192.168.0.xx address and my ethernet is on 192.168.1.xx.  The 2 networks can't see each other.  How do I correct this?

Thanks.

Do you have another router? How is your network setup?

You need to have them all on the same subnet (192.168.0.xxx) to see each other.

It's plugged into my Verizon FIOS router.  I don't think I can switch the subnet on the FIOS router and I'm having no luck getting the COVR on 192.168.1.xx.  The FIOS router assigns a 192.168.1.xx address to the COVR, but the COVR DHCP distributes 192.168.0.xx addresses.

You need to put the Verizon router in Bridge mode and let the Covr distribute DHCP to your clients.

The Internet/WAN port of the Covr device connected to your router cannot receive the same IP address as it's local/LAN side (ie 192.168.1.1 -- 192.168.1.xxx to clients). It cannot work since it is a router.

If you want to add wireless to your verizon router, the Covr system is the wrong device. You need to get access point(s).

The covr devices are not simple access points. 1 of them has to act as a router. When connecting a router to another router the subnets need to be different and you will have double-NAT which can cause some issues.

Well, that stinks.  If I put the router in Bridge mode I lose my ethernet ports so that's not an option.  Guess this is going up for sale.  How is a home user supposed to understand that setup?  There's nothing in the description that indicates that this has to be your sole router.
