I have 2 questions that I`ve been hitting my head on

We have a network with 24 users. The network is behind a sonic wall and are server is behind the sonic wall with the rest of the network

Are network address in the office is 192.168.52.x Subnet Gateway and the dns is the server and gateway ip Server is

Everything is working fine but the owner wants to add a dlink dir601 wireless router to the network. I plug the router in the wall and then into the owners computer and everything works..

the router gives the computer a ip and a gateway of

Everything works fine for awhile. But when the owners remotes into the server or if he is searching the web it boots her off for a couple of mins.. Why is this happening?

When the owner is disconnect from the router everything is perfect

Is there some sort of settings in the router that I need to configure? if so what?

Right now the sonic wall is acting as a dhcp server for now.. Are firewall hosting company will be changing this and we will be putting dhcp on the servers along with back up dc's

Is there an issue where you can't implement a standard Wireless Access Point? like this one for example, I am not endorsing that wap. There is often issues when trying to add a 2nd router to an infrastructure and trying to use it as an AP. – BigHomie Mar 13 '13 at 15:22
Could you explain the network topology in a bit more details? What is the purpose of the DLink device (only need a WiFi Access Point or create a different subnet?) and how do you link it to the owner's computer and the rest of the network (replace network-to-PC link or create a second one)? – Lukas Mar 13 '13 at 15:23
this is how the network is configured. Cable modem---) sonic wall---) switch----)all the computers.. However the owners computer is now connected gateway-->sonicwall-->switch-->routers---pc. – user160605 Mar 13 '13 at 16:58
the dlink is there so a few people can connect through wireless (2-3 laptops).. I`m guessing the dlink is pushing the owners computer to the range... where the sonicwall is pushing everything else to the range.. could this be the problem.. if so how would I fix it/ – user160605 Mar 13 '13 at 17:02
The owners PC is connect outside of your internal network i.e. outside of the sonicwall? – Chris Mar 13 '13 at 17:49
