Hello,

Kind of unclear, if you don't mind to clarify what you're trying to accomplish.....Were you trying setup the first network with internet connection and a second network without internet but able to access shared resources (files, printer, etc...)?

Just to confirm you only wanted the wireless network to be able to access the Internet, but you would like the Wired and Wireless network to be able to share files and other network resources?

If YES, you may remove the Default Gateway and DNS Servers from the wired computers, they won't be able to connect to the internet but able to access shared network resources (printer, files, etc.)

Another thing that you need to setup is either Workgroup (for mixed Operating Systems) or Homegroup Network (for Windows 7).

found this on another site will this work

Yes, here is what it should look like:

1. Don't use the WAN port. Connect the two routers from LAN port to LAN port
2. Turn off the DI-524's DHCP server
3. On Home > LAN, give the DI-524 an IP in your existing router's LAN network space
4. Ignore the other functionality (such as firewall, logs, and etc.)
5. All the other set up is the same

Anything connecting to the DI-524, via LAN port or wireless, will use your other router for DHCP, firewall, and net access.

Yes this will work however you will only be able to have one subnet. For example all devices connected to the routers will have an ip address of something similar to : 192.168.1.x

Technically this is still one network and unless you have specific need to do so for example to extend the range of your network if it's a wireless router since all data is being sent through one Ethernet cable to the other router. Unless you are using a CAT6 cable and it is supported at both ends you may find performance hiccups if multiple users are trying to access the internet at the same time from the second router

Hope This Helps,
Josh
