Dlink Router with Cisco Network

I have a Dlink Router that I just got because my old access point died.  The new one does not allow me to make the wireless router act like just an access point.

In order to get the internet and access to my network via the dlink, I need to establish routes...correct?

So on my cisco routers I would need to do static routes that would look something like this correct?

ip route  (The 5.0 is the dlink router and the .0.0 is the cisco networks) - Cisco 3745 - Cisco 3640 - Cisco 2600 - Dlink Wireless Router

Dlink Router with Cisco Network

Hello Janathan.

Adding D-link to your network does not require any additional configuration of your Cisco devices.

D-link wireless router performs NAT service for users conneted to its LAN (cable or Wifi).

So in your cisco network, these users would be represented by one address - the address of the D-link WAN interface (connects D-link to Cisco router).

Let's say, for example, you have subnet of between your Cisco device and D-link wifi router. You have to configure static IP address of the WAN interface of D-link, let's say .... all users behind D-link (on wifi or eth lan) are represented by address in your cisco network (because of the D-link NAT).

So you do not have to configure anything new on your Cisco devices. is already known on your network.

Hope this helps.
