I have the router listed in the title which I bought for a wireless network at work. It's a modem/router but I only want it for routing. D-Link's support tell me I can't do this.

I've had it working with the incoming internet (supplied by the offices we are in, we are given an IP) into one of the LAN ports and a laptop plugged into another. It successfully routes through, but this causes the router ( to be un-pingable. Also, the setup utility won't allow me the required IP (invalid IP address)

Am I fighting a lost cause?

Give the router an IP on the same range as your LAN for a start, that should let you access the web interface.
