	I'm afraid you misunderstood what he meant.  Since your Dlink device is a router, not a switch, the network segments on both side of it should have different addresses.

	In other words:
* the segment between modem and the router has an address of, for example,
Actually, I think 192.168.0.x is assigned by the modem because in this segment, the modem acts as a DHCP server while the WAN port of the router acts as a DHCP client.

* the segment between the router and the PC's has an address of, for example,
In this segment, the router is DHCP server while your PC's the client.

	Then configure your modem as well as your router and you should make it work.
