D-Link WBR-2310 No Wired Connectivity
I have an Internet Connectivity problem which I believe was caused by resetting our D-Link WBR-2310 router. We have a strange, perhaps illogical network setup in our office. Although it was set up before my time, I have figured it works as follows:
(1) A wired/wireless router (let's call it Router A) is connected directly to the DSL modem.
(2) An Ethernet cord runs from this router to a 5 port switch.
(3) 4 cords run from the switch to individual workstations. These computers obtain their IP addresses automatically.
(4) 1 cord runs from the switch to another wired/wireless router (let's call it Router B).
(5) Two cords run from Router B to individual workstations (let's call them Workstations C). These computers used permanent IP, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS server addresses. I understand that this was done because they could not obtain their IP addresses automatically.
The problem I've caused seems to stem from me resetting Router B to the factory settings while trying to secure its signal and changing its IP address from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 (in order to avoid conflict with the modem which has the same IP address). Once I did that, Workstations C could not access the Internet.
I have tinkered with the TCP/IP settings for Workstations C (e.g. by changing the default gateways to the Router B's new IP address), but it doesn't work. What else should I be doing? Should I go into the router admin to change settings there? I would appreciate any help.

If router B was being used as a router, you will have to wait for our network experts.
Sub networks, give me a headake.
The 220.127.116.11 should be router A, not the modem.
Are you sure B was being used as a router, or just a switch?

Here is a tutorial on subnets.
As you can see, it is not as simple as making up a different IP.

Actually, I was waiting for a reply. so you would have more info.
I knew it would be over my head, if it was not just a switch.
Hows it going?Hard Sayin Not Knowin

I believe that I might have solved the issue by buying a $15 switch and plugging in all the devices involved, including the wireless router. Now the two workstations have Internet access and mobile devices can connect securely to the router. I'm not opening up any glaring vulnerabilities by doing this, am I?

Bear in mind that that us guesswork based on the minimal info available from your previous post...
Glad to hear that you're back up though...
