WAP to Switch to wireless router

Specs: Windows Vista, 512
Hi,
I have SBG900 motorola modem/wireless
access point. then I have a switch DES-1105
connected to that wireless access point and
then I have wilress router DIR-655 connected
to that switch.

So basically I have this flow.

WAP ----> SWITCH ----> Wireless Router.

Now if I connect my laptop directly to switch. It
works means I can connect to the internet
fine.

WAP ----> SWITCH ----> PC

Above flow works fine.


But If put wiless router between my laptop and
Switch, it does not work. means can not go on
internet.

WAP---->SWITCH----> Wiless router ---> PC

above flow does not work.

I tried even connecting my wireless router
directly to WPA but still did not worked.
I used cross over cable /straight throuh cable
and tried everything I know.

Can anybody help me to solve this?

Any help would be really appreciated
Thanks

it works becasue that is the way it is supposed to be done.

Any reason why you need the Motorola SBG 900 and the Wireless Router as the SBG900 is in effect a Wirelss Router itself. Having two routers in the mix just complicates the issue unecesserily. The only reason for doing so in your case is if you wanted two seperate Wireless Networks.

Thanks Stuart,
I would like to use router mainly because I feels it gives strong
signal then WAP modem. Now I can not even remove wireless
access point because it also act as my modem.
Is there anyway to make this work?

You are going to have to disable DHCP in the DIR-655 wireless router and plug a cable from the SBG900 into one of the LAN ports, in effect making the DIR-655 a switch with a WAP built in. Then disable wireless in the SBG900 if you are not going to use it. The switch should be the last link although unless you have more tha three wired computers you dont really need it.

So it is WAP ------> Router -----> Switch -------> PC

I spent 2.5hrs resetting the modem and router until I looked here. Turning off the DHCP on the router worked like a charm.
