Nella mia dolce dimora è attivo un collegamento ADSL2+ di Libero a 4Mb abbastanza decente.
Meno decente è il router Belkin FD7632-4 v6000 che sporadicamente per 1 o 2 secondi decide che deve riposarsi e butta giù la linea, ripeto è molto sporadico ma se avviene mentre si sta scaricando un file da 200Mb senza un Download Manager ti da incazzare e non poco.
Dunque ho pensato perchè non usare il D-Link come router e il Belkin come semplice Access Point?
To Configure the Wireless Router
Do not connect the wireless router to your network yet, as it may have the same IP address as your other router.
Connect to the wireless router, turn off its DHCP server, and give the wireless router an assigned IP address on your LAN:
1. Connect a PC directly to the wireless router.
2. Reboot the PC.
3. Log in to the wireless router (usually at 192.168.0.1, with User Name = admin and Password = password).
4. Go to the LAN IP menu and disable DHCP by unchecking Use router as DHCP server.
5. Select LAN IP, and change the IP address to 192.168.0.99.
6. Click Apply to save the settings. (You lose the connection to the router since its IP address changed.)
7. Connect one of the wireless router’s Local (LAN) ports to your existing network.
Do not make any connection to the wireless router’s Internet (WAN) port.
This completes the access point configuration (except for FVM318). You can now log in to the wireless router at its new IP address of 192.168.0.99 and configure features such as WEP and Access Control List.
* Some customers have reported needing to turn off RIP.
Additional Configuration for the FVM318 Wireless Router
The FVM318 can function as an IPSec-secured wireless access point. (These steps are not needed unless using an FVM318.)
1. In addition to the steps described in the preceding section, go to the FVM318′s Advanced > Static Routes menu and define a new static route to the other router:
Route Name = main_router
Active = checked
Private = checked
Destination IP Address = 0.0.0.0
IP Subnet Mask = 0.0.0.0
Gateway IP Address = 192.168.0.1 (Or the IP address of the other router, if it’s not 192.168.0.1, as shown in the above diagram for “Other Router”.)
Metric = 2
2. Click Apply.
If the FVM318 does not allow 0.0.0.0, upgrade to later software.
To Configure the SafeNet SoftRemote Basic VPN Client Software on an FVM318
These steps are not needed, except for FVM318.
In other applications the FVM318 would probably be your main router, and your Internet gateway and IPSec gateway. For this application however, the FVM318 is your computer’s IPSec gateway, and another router is your Internet gateway. The Internet gateway address is obtained by DHCP from the other router, but the IPSec gateway is configured manually:
1. Run the SafeNet SoftRemote Basic VPN Client configuration utility on your PC.
2. In the client configuration, change IPSec gateway from LAN Gateway to IP Address.
3. In the IP address box, enter the LAN IP address of the FVM318 (192.168.0.99).
