D-link Dir-615 wireless n router

Specs: Windows 7, amd quad core/ 4 gig
My dir 615 is the router connected to the Motorola cable modem, connected by cat 5 to the 615 by lan port is a di 524 from a lan port. They both work for wired, but, not wireless. I left the 615 alone ( specfic. ssid & channel 6 & passkey). I change the 524 to, different ssid & channel 1 & different pass key, both routers no longer work wireless. ( I also tried same results). If I leave the 524 on 192.168 .0.1 but change the rest as above, the 615 works wire & wireless. the 524 works wired, But wireless, I can connect to the 524 but it does not connect to the internet. If I turn dhcp off on the 524 It will not connect to any of my wireless devices it looks for the server # but never connects. I must be missing something.or is the 524 just not capable ?

Click on my name above and read my "how-to" guide titled, "Adding a second router to your LAN"

Pay attention to the scenario where you connect the two router's "LAN port to LAN port" (if I remember correctly, that's version 1). Follow the instructions.

If you have a WLAN (wireless network) setup correctly on the first router, all you should have to do on the second is enable wireless, give it the same SSID/encryption and password as you used on the upstream router. You will want them on separate channels. Put one on channel 1 and the other on channel 11.

If you already have DHCP enabled on the first router, and disable it on the second, wireless clients connecting to router 2 will still get DHCP from the DHCP service on the first router.....if/when you have everything configured correctly.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
