I wish to repurpose a wireless router to serve as a wireless access point behind a wired router (serving as gateway to WAN) so that I don't have to buy more hardware and recapture value on prior equipment investment.
As far as I know, I should set up a DHCP reservation for the wireless router's WAN interface, configure the WAN interface to use DHCP for itself, turn off the DHCP service for its LAN interfaces, and disable NAT as well. Based on NAT being disabled, I have both sides of the wireless router on the same subnet (192.168.0/24). The gateway router is 192.168.0.1 and the wireless router is 192.168.0.2.
Right now, pings do not flow through the wireless router into the rest of the lan, however. Furthermore, DHCP does not reach the wireless clients and they must use static interface configuration at the moment. What else must I do, or what have I done wrong?
