Hello!
Back story: we are renting a room in a smaller building and have two LAN ports that are connected to the rest of the buildings network and building.

Goal: We want a private network in this room where none of the others in this building can access our network(we are going to be sharing files/printers/top secret stuffz).

Tools: D-link DI-524, 3 computers. I know the central Router(which is off bounds) that connects to the modem has the IP: 192.168.2.1

Problems: I try and map out the network (windows 7) and where my router should be theres a "?".

How do I access the configure/admin page for my router? Something about an access point?

Modem -> Central router(private/locked/off bounds) -> my router -> my computer and the rest in this room.

Other notes: Anyone like Energy Drinks?

update:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix:
Description: Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter
DHCP Enabled: Yes
IPv4 Address: 192.168.2.16
IPv4 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Lease Obtained: den 11 augusti 2011 17:06:55
Lease Expires: den 19 augusti 2011 17:06:55
IPv4 Default Gateway: 192.168.2.1
IPv4 DHCP Server: 192.168.2.2
IPv4 DNS Server: 192.168.2.2
IPv4 WINS Server: 192.168.2.2
NetBIOS over Tcpip Enabled: Yes

My adress seems to be: 192.168.2.16

However there is a router (our one) that is connected between the the default gateway and my computer.
How do i set it up

Open a webpage and type in the router address. Should pull up router admin options.

No no I dont. I'd rather inject the cancer straight to my stomach or kidneys. Guess im a traditionalist when it comes to such things. Coffee and tea.

Find the manual for your router, it's pretty self explanatory. You use the IP address of the router that is connected to the modem as your gateway, not the IP of the modem. The external interface should be able to be setup to obtain an IP via DHCP, so you probably won't even need to worry about that anyways, since that's sent in the DHCP configuration information when it obtains a lease.

Tip: don't use an addressing scheme that overlaps public networks, you will be sorry if you do and your little network grows larger than just the 3 computers you are setting up. You probably should just use 10.x.x.x for a network address since they're already using 192.x.x.x, just easier to keep them segmented.

If you don't know how to do this already, you would probably be better off getting someone to do it for you and show you/explain to you what they are doing if you are concerned with security. It wouldn't take but maybe 30 minutes at the most to get everything configured properly, and worth the cost if you don't know networking to begin with.

Forget about the sockets you already have in place that access the other network. If they are not going to share an internet connection with you and supply you a path through their router then its worthless anyway and just encourages 'investigators' to abuse the situation.

Make your own little network in the office, forget about the other offices LAN i say. It is simple enough, you can do it tidy and plumb in your own socketry, or semi- tidy and just use premade to length cables along the floor.

Your router is impossible to know about without the make being known, usually for 'general' public routers you put the gateway IP into your web browser while connected and then configuration pages open there. Other more 'professional' solutions require comms cable (usually RS232 link) and knowledge of the shell commands.

Many routers also have telnet ability for configuration.
