Specs: Windows 7
I have a Dlink ADSL2+ router and a ASUS N wireless router. My Asus n wireless router has a problem in access point mode. What I would like to know is how do I use Dlink router just like a modem instead of router and use my Asus wireless n router as primary router.(so that Asus wireless router can be configured to use pppoe mode)
Dlink DSL-252OU

Click on my name above in my response and read my how-to guide titled "Adding a second router.

You'll want to pay attention to the version where you are extending your LAN and not the one where you are adding a second, separate subnet.

From what I'm reading you can't use the ASUS device as a modem if it does not in fact have a modem built into it. The modem is the device that converts the signal from the phone to the network. I suspect you'll have to add the ASUS as the second router. However, this doesn't prevent you from creating the wireless LAN on it. If you just don't create the WLAN on the other device, then only the ASUS device will be providing a wireless network.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the captain of my soul.

✔ Best Answer

Read the DLink routers manual, especially the part for bridge mode, that is, what you need to activate at the DLink.
Then you have to configure the Asus router so that it does the authentication at your ISP.

In that case, the routers Asus routers WAN/DSL interface gets the public ip address from the ISP.

I think that is, what you try to accomplish.
