Small business network trouble!

by Relinquished / September 3, 2006 12:37 PM PDT

This is probably a really easy configuration problem with the IP settings in small business server or something but I hope someone can help. I work at a local doctors surgery and was asked by the boss to upgrade the LAN and WAN with a new router modem that had wireless (being the only one in the office with an computer knowledge).

The network consists of 4 computers, 2 run on small business server and 2 on windows XP. Originally, the network was running off a D-Link 4 port router modem, with a LAN cable running from the D-link to a 8port hub (don't ask why as only the 2 computers running small business server were plugged into it). Anyway the original network was configured, I'm assuming, using small business server (I have only worked on home networks using XP or lower). The gateway the network is using is

My boss asked me to change the D-Link router modem to one with wireless capabilities (I got a DSL-G604T) as he was sick of the cables running everywhere. I unplugged everything, changed the router modem over to the new wireless one, installed wireless cards in all the computers that would need a wireless connection (3 of them) and run the software, and plugged everthing in.

All went well, except the problem is, when I try and run the DSL-604Ts set-up wizard I can't access the in the browser to do so, on any of the computers. I figure that if the network was originally configured in small business server on a gateway of then i need to change the routers gateway to access the D-Link set-up wizard on each computer? Is this correct? And how do I go about it as I have no knowledge of small business server? Finally, will I have to perform any other steps?
