Try to turn off the DHCP server in the secound router, that way it'll be a swich technically, and set the secound router's fix ip address to something different, because I'm quite sure that both routers have the same 192.168.0.1 IP address and that's nogood.
Set it to anyting from 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router .
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then connect 1 computer to the router and open the router set up page. Once you open the router set up page, you will be able to find the wireless network key.
Use that password to connect to the wireless network

Netgear Wireless Router won't work with my Linksys wired router.


As asked above, why would you want the wired router and the wireless router on the same network?

The direct answer to your question(s) is found on Netgear's website. http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/965/kw/wpn824/r_id/166

The key is to turn off the Netgear DHCP, and give it an address that is unreachable by the Linksys DHCP ie if the Linksys gives out IP addresses starting at 100 or 101, you set your IP address to 99, turn off the DHCP, and plug it into the network NOT using the WAN port, ever. We tend to start at 251 or 221 just for clarity's sake.

The point is you answered your own question. The Netgear wired and wireless works fine. One piece of equipment and better reporting statistics....what are you missing?

Connect your broadband router to the netgear router, set your netgear router as "gateway" and put netgear's IP address as your DNS Server and Gateway in your laptop wifi connection.

Sierra Wireless AirCard 595U And PS3


I understand that you want to connect the PS3 using the Wireless card and NETGEAR card. Please note that the setup you have will not work for internet access. You can not configure the Air card to work with NETGEAR router. you need to have wih a broadband connection available for this router to connect to internet.

Once you have the router configured with Internet access then you may either connect the PS3 wired or wireless to the router, like you connect a desktop or laptop to the router.

Netgear Wireless print server WGP5606


Hoopers statement is generally correct, but INCOMPLETE in this case. It cannot be used as a router, because this device has no input for the network connection from your cable modem or other broadband device. HOWEVER, this device is also a wireless bridge. That is, you can use it as a router to connect multiple computers in your SOHO network (but not to the broadband device) and you can use it to wirelessly route a remotely located computer or device, such as a PS3, a TIVO box, etc. that cannot be provided with a wireless network adaptor, to a wireless router that is connnected to your broadband device.
