My System Specs


Actually, I don't know how I did it, but I managed to leave the wifi signal on for BOTH the Shaw modem and my old D-Link. All I did was enable WDS on the Shaw wifi (I didn't even enter any MAC address), changed the SSID so that the D-Link and Shaw modem had different names, and lastly changed the router IP address for the D-Link so that it is different than the Shaw wifi modem, and voila!

EDIT: just tried changing the SSID on the Shaw modem to the same name as the D-Link, and everything still seem to work. Guess all that mattered was me changing the router IP and turning on WDS...

EDIT: my only problem now is that I can't share the printer anymore. Connecting it to the D-Link will allow all my wireless devices to print from it, but my desktop, which is connected directly to the Shaw modem, can't see the D-Link router and thus can't see the printer either. I can't connect the printer to the Shaw modem since the USB port onboard apparently can't be used to share devices...sigh...
