Wireless Router

By ip_fresh ·
I recently bought a Netgear WGR614 Wireless Router. It's connected through a Linksys 24 port 10/100 Base T Switch, Which is in turn connected to our ISP. I had to order a special IP that went around the firewall, without it I would get an error saying that I entered an invalid gateway. The computers on the network can connect to the router fine, but they have "limited or no connectivity" they cant access a single website. I want to use DHCP on the router and use it solely for wireless access, the rest of the users on the network are connected directly to the Switch and have manually configured IP's within the firewall.

Can anyone help me out with how to get this router to work properly?

make sure that your dhcp is enabled either at the router or modem only.

You say that your network is aleady connected to your ISP via something else. Is it a Cable/ADSL Modem? If it is why not use the WGR614 instead and enable DHCP on that after allocating your IP Range etc. If you are using the WGR614 elsewhere purely as a WiFi access point then I would suggest getting a WG602 or similar. Just make sure you set up the security correctly for WiFi and change the admin password.

You probably cannot limit dhcp services only to wireless clients, but that's not a show stopper. If you configure an IP address on a PC it will not query DHCP for an IP address. Therefore your desired result is still achieved.
