Quick outline of how our network is set up: 1. Our DSL line comes into a DLINK DI-605 ethernet router. 2. Two computers are hooked directly to the router. 3. There's a third wire that runs through a wall and into the ceiling, dropping down to a room on the other side of the house. 4. That line connects to a switch. 5. One line from the switch goes off to some pvc piping and runs to a computer in a back building on the property. 6. The second line from the switch used to connect to a desktop in the room the switch is in. Now, for the question. The desktop in there is gone, now replaced by a laptop. We'd like to set up a wireless connection right there. The laptop came with a DLink DI-524 wireless broadband router. It's not described anywhere as being a WAP. Can I still use it as a WAP and just plug it into the switch, Or is there some missing piece of hardware in a standard router that prevents it from acting as a WAP? ? The laptop only needs access to the internet, not the other computers. If I can use it as a WAP, do I need to specify any of the internet connectivity settings in the wireless router? Or will it properly connect straight to the internet, following the settings on the ethernet router? Thanks for any tips or advice on this.
