How to share internet on Dlink Wireless Access point

alphabravo786
Hi.. I am using Windows 2003 server and a LAN.. I am also using DSL modeml
configured on windows 2003 server... I have 2 LAN cards on my server one is
set on my LAN and second is set on my DSL... Now I want to add a Wireless
access point to share internet. My Dlink Wireless access point has the ip
address of 192.168.0.50 same IP class configured on my LAN card 192.168.0.1
range & my dsl modem is configured on 192.168.1.2 range.Now I want to add a D-Link Access Point for laptops to use internet without using lan cables. Please can any one tell me that how can I configure my D-link wireless access point to share internet wirelessly... Adding more I am using Winproxy
as well for sharing the internet locally... My Windows 2003 server has dhcp
enabled.

Best Regards
Asad

    You won't need winproxy because the router will be the proxy, and you can't have both the router and your server acting as DHCP servers, so decide on which one you want to use.

    dont set the router as DHCP, use the server. if you use the router it can take people up to ten minutes to login to the network :)

    you need to set the wireless access point up on a static IP which is on the same IP range of your network! IE my network is on 10.10.0.1 (255.255.0.0) so in my case i would set it up on something like 10.10.0.2 and reserve that IP address on your DHCP server so it cant be issued to anyone else.

    now if you plug that access point into your network, you need to cable it into a network point or switch....

    this device should now be accessible on the network :)
