Default How Do I ......

Set up my D-Link hot spot router on my home wifi network, so that my Curve will only connect to the D-Link router?

Thanks

Let me explain in detail in what I am trying to do....

Okay I need some help, I have a Linksys WRT54GS Router that my Tivo, Xbox 360, PS3 and Home Computer are connecting to the internet. Attached to that is my D-Link DVG-1120M VOIP phone router. I need to set up my TMobile D-LINK TMG5240 router on this network for HOTSPOT at home service. Here is what I need help with. The New TMO D-Link router I want to just to be used for my Blackberry Curve 8320, I dont want any other devices to use the D-LINK. How do I set it up so none of my other devices will even try to connect to the D-LINK. So basiclly in a nutshell I just need the D-LINK to offer trhe Wi-Fi Hot Spot service to my phone, and all the other devices to operate as normal, as they are set up on my Linksys??

Just make sure to change the channels each device is using. The best channels to use are 1, 6, and 11.

As for the other devices, set up MAC address filtering on the D-Link and configure the MAC of your Curve as the only device that is allowed to connect. This would probably be the easiest way.

THE VOIP Is a Gateway so I need that one
The Linksys is the Wireless Router for the House
The Morons at TMO said I needed the D-Link Hot Spot ROuter so I get UMA all the time
