linking a wireless router to a existing network

By blandry ·
here is the real question we have network with windows 2003, DSL ISP Transedge, coming into a router modem combo then to a hub then it spiders out there is another hub in my office about 100yards away. From that hub to a wall outlet then my computer. At the wall outlet i want to go to a Netgear WGT624 wireless router. so on my wireless laptop I have a WG511T pc card. I can access the internet but not my intranet. i can't find any realy good resources i can understand. Am i puting the router in the right sequence? do i have to have it before the server or what do I need to do to be able to access my internal network from this wireless router? also i might add i have sut off the windows firewall on the laptop and we are trying to connect to a domain.

Here is your scenario

DSL -----Router - HUB -
\ /
Wall Jack
\ /
Netgear WGT624

(Wireless Laptop)
It looks as though you?ll need to log on to the router and configure the router so that it sees the network?s subnet and/or gateway address.

First thing shut off dhcp on the wireless router , and make it just an acess point , right now it is getting the internet from the wall jack but its also servering as its own network . if you do that the laptop will get the ip address from the server or main cable modem or router on your network then it will become part of your existing network and beable to acess your intranet. any questions email me at
