This is going to seem like an odd request, but it's necessary. I have a wireless router that is not to be used for internet access. The current router that I have is a DLink DIR-626L and I use it to connect to a few embedded devices for an application that I am working on.
For internet, I am hardwired by ethernet into the network. The problem that I am having is that if I connect to my DLink WiFi router, internet traffic wants to go through the DLink router instead over the ethernet port and the DLink router has no internet connection. I know this is going on because if I try to pull up a webpage I get a D-Link error page saying that I am not connected to the internet.
Looking at some other questions, it seems like my router might be advertising itself as a "gateway" and I can't seem to find a way to turn that off by digging through the settings.
Is there a way to tell Linux that all internet traffic should go over the ethernet port?
A few specifications:
-All of the devices that are broadcasting to the router are doing so over UDP. They are just spitting out data to a static IP over a dedicated port.
-I am using Linux Mint 17.2.
-I had this setup working with a small battery powered TP-Link router (TL-MR3040). I didn't do anything special for this, it just "worked."
