Then there is something not correct.

 

Plug your old router into one port of the home hub, and connect your computer directly to another port, remembering to restore your computer back to automatic IP and DNS settings.

 

Go to http://192.168.1.15

 

and see what you get.

Then you have not set the router up correctly.

The old router menu should be  at that address. Did you remember to change its IP settings and save the changes?

 

If you plug your computer into the old router and type the 192.168.1.15 address, you should see the router menu.

If not, the its defaulted back to its original 192.168.0.1, and the new settings had not been saved.

Manual page 2

If you are connecting the D-Link router to another router to use as a wireless access point and/or switch, you will have
to do the following before connecting the router to your network:
• Disable UPnP™
• Disable DHCP
Change the LAN IP address to an available address on your network. The LAN ports on the router cannot
accept a DHCP address from your other router.
To connect to another router, please follow the steps below:
1. Plug the power into the router. Connect one of your computers to the router (LAN port) using an Ethernet cable.
Make sure your IP address on the computer is 192.168.0.xxx (where xxx is between 2 and 254). Please see the
Networking Basics section for more information. If you need to change the settings, write down your existing settings
before making any changes. In most cases, your computer should be set to receive an IP address automatically in
which case you will not have to do anything to your computer.
2. Open a web browser and enter http://192.168.0.1 and press Enter. When the login window appears, set the user
name to admin and leave the password box empty. Click OK to continue.
3. Click on Advanced and then click Advanced Network. Uncheck the Enable UPnP checkbox. Click Save Settings
to continue.
4. Click Setup and then click Network Settings. Uncheck the Enable DHCP Server server checkbox. Click Save
Settings to continue.
5. Under Router Settings, enter an available IP address and the subnet mask of your network. Click Save Settings to
save your settings. Use this new IP address to access the configuration utility of the router in the future. Close the
browser and change your computer’s IP settings back to the original values as in Step 1.

Step by step

  1. Change your computers network settings to a static address of 192.168.0.100
  2. Connect it to your old router.
  3. Go to 192.168.0.1 to get to the menu
  4. disable UpnP
  5. disable DHCP
  6. under router settings change its IP to 192.168.1.15   (notice the "1")
  7. Save the settings and reboot the router
  8. Change your computers network settings to a static address of 192.168.1.100
  9. Go to 192.168.1.15 and you should see the menu again, at the routers new IP address.
  10. Connect both your computer and router to the home hub
  11. Go to 192.168.1.15 and you should see the menu again

Important, DO NOT connect anything to the INTERNET port on your old router.

Only use the other ports.

 

When you have done that, let me know.

If you can see the old router at the correct address of 192.168.1.15, with both the router and your computer plugged into the home hub, you should now be able to scan for wireless networks, and see your old routers SSID.

 

Then, provided you remembered the wireless key for it, you should be able to connect to your old routers wireless network.

Remember to reset your PCs network adapter to automatic IP and automatic DNS, otherwise you will not be able to access the Internet on it.

Are you getting an IP address, if so, what is it?

 

Have you completely deleted and then re-created the wireless connection on your devices, as old settings tend to remain.

 

To prove that its not a wireless key problem, temporarily change the wireless settings on you old router to open, i.e. no wireless key, and then try again, after first deleting the existing settings again. Then try again.

 

There is no reason why it should not work
