I have Uverse Internet / TV using the 3801HGV Gateway that is currently running my wi-fi in my house. The range sucks, it can't even go down the hallway to my bedroom less than 50 feet. I want to go back to using my Dir-655 DLink router for wifi (and possibly some of the LAN ports).
From what I have read and tried so far, all I have to do is turn off DHCP on the DLink router, plug it into the Uverse gateway via a LAN port on both and it basically turns into an access point or hub to plug into and the Uverse router assigns ip addresses.
Well that seemed to work, but for some reason, I can't go to the 192.168.0.1 address to get into the Dlink router after I do that. Any idea why?
Next question goes along with that one - I want to be able to run wifi off my Dlink router also, but I can't seem to do that, only plug into one the LAN ports hard wired. Is this possible in this setup to use the DLink wifi instead of the uverse wifi?
I hope this makes sense and someone else has simple steps on how to make this work as all of the forum posts so far say way too many steps I can't get to work. Thanks!
