online dns? Eh? All dns is online [internet] do that doesn't make much sense.

Assuming the adsl router has multiple ports you use a crossover cable from adsl lan port to dlink lan [not wan] port. You disable dhcp on the dlink and assign it a static ip like x.x.x.254 so you can admin it from the lan.

adsl router set to provide dhcp.

Connect the buffalo to the adsl router as set to be dhcp client and you are off and running.

riteshpandey do you have access to this adsl router? Can it provide multiple ip addresses? I have to suspect so if it is also allowing wireless access.

If so then configure as I outlined in my first post.

if you don't have access or it doesn't provide multiple ip addresses we have a different problem to be addressed. We'll cross that road when we get to it.

Again i will explain my situation.
1. I have UTStarcom WA3002-g1 router which has wireless and 1 WAN port and I connect my ADSL to this which assigns a dynamic IP to this router. For now I can connect to internet using this router.
2. Now I dont want to use this router for internet and I want to use DLink-DIR 615 n-Router in which I connect my buffalo media server.
3. I also want to access my media server using external website using dynamic DNS agent. So i want to create a network which will allow me to connect to Media Server port from outside world.
Help me configure this.

Where did you get the idea for #3 from?

Normally you forward the appropriate port in the router to the media server and walla you access the media server by typing in

yourwanipaddress:port assigned to media server.
note the colon between ip address and port.

If you don't want to use the adsl router then why haven't you just hooked up the dlink instead?
