Trouble creating wireless access point from D-Link DI-514 router

\015 My main router is a linksys 8-port wired. i would like to add D-Link DI-514 as wireless access point only for my laptops that have wireless capability. found a tutorialhttp://www.tweaktown.com/guides/1575/3/using_an_old_router_as_a_diy_wireless_access_point/index.htmlthat seems more focused on converting an old linksys wireless router.or the problem could be: (1) my laptops (ibm thinkpad R-31 and X-40) are a bit older and have wireless specs that are not compatible with the D-Link; (2) i'm doing something else wrong and just don't know what i'm doing.just in case my laptop specs are not compatible, a friend gave me a belkin wireless network card (F5D8010).any help would be greatly appreciated.\015

Answers :

You should be able to plug the D-Link into any of the Linksys wired ports (not the Uplink port) and tell the D-Link to get an IP address from the Linksys router (as long as the Linksys router has DHCP turned on). Verify that both boxes are on the same network (192.168...) and don't have the same IP address. What happens when you do this? Can you get to the Linksys & D-Link from a wired workstation?

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
