D Link support got back to my email to them asking about this.
They said it can be done without internet access. I guess I'll have to spend some time on the phone with them....something I'm not looking forward to.

No its not common for routers to Require a Internet connection. Most routers can be configured as an access point which doesn't require the WAN port. Page 24 of the owners manual shows you how to enter the settings manually. Do not use the easy setup cd. Connect to the routers log in page at 192.168.0.1, Select Admin from the drop down menu and leave the password blank. Select Manual configuration, this should let you set up the wireless for the computers.

Thanks. Yes. I eventually found my way to Network Setup. I've had the manual but I can't say it was all that useful for a novice at networking like me.
I was lost in all those setup screens. There were just too many settings for this and that.
I'll get this figured out yet. Even if I have to read something.
