I have AT&T Uverse service with a 2wire 3800 HGV-B residential gateway. The wireless service was always dropping and was very slow, so last week I purchased a D-Link DIR-825 Xtreme N Dual Band Gigabit router to improve the wireless service.
D-link tech support helped me set the DIR-825 as a cascading router. The wireless service works great in this mode. I have the DIR-825 plugged in to switch such that none of the televisions are affected by the DIR-825.
The problem is that the computer and devices that are plugged into the DIR-825 are isolated and invisible from the remainder of the network.
What settings on the D-Link page at 192.168.0.1 do I need to change?

Go into your router's setup and disable DHCP. Change it's static IP address to 192.168.1.10. Plug the router into the RG using lan port to lan port, do not use wan port. Disable the wireless signal from your U-Verse RG. Log your wireless devices onto your router using it's SSID and password. Plug your wired devices into the RG.

D-Link tech support instructed me to use the WAN port, not the LAN port. Can I still get to the D-Link settings page if it is plugged into the LAN port?

No, you have to plug your computer into your router first and make all the necessary setting changes. Then, unplug your computer and plug the router into the U-Verse RG.
