Two routers US robotics connected together

I have US robotics 5461 Wireless router and USR 9112 as ADSL router. The USR 9112 works fine alone but when I connect its ethernet output to WAN port of USR 5461 I cannot access internet any more neither with ethernet cable connecting USR 5461 to laptotp nor using it in wireless mode. I assigned to USR 9112 and to USR 5461 and let my laptop as dynamic IP assignment. Any suggestion on how should I configure those two routers to make them work toghether??
The general idea was to use the USR5461 as wireless router and the USR 9112 as ADSL modem.... Many thanks. Regards. Domenico

Re: two routers US robotics connected together

It appears you may have confused the world because of your IP addressing choices. Do you know what a subnet mask is? It determines which machines share the same network with other machines. Routers by design are the connection between different subnets, Most routers default to for the subnet mask which means both of your routers are in the same subnet as they are 192.168.2.? meaning you have two separate networks sharing the same same subnet address when they should be unique. Try making the wireless router or This puts devices in your wireless network on the 192.168.3 subnet and the devices in the ADSL subnet in the 192.168.2 subnet which includes the WAN half of the wireless router. I believe this will correct your network issues. In this case if hardcoded the gateway for the wireless router would be also known as the the adsl modem

I have a U.S. Robotics USRobotics USR5461 Wireless router

heres the online installation manual
see configuration tab - You will not be prompted to login the first time you connect to the Web User Interface during the initial setup. During the Setup Wizard procedure, you will be prompted to create a user name and password to log on to the router. If you create a user name and password, you will need to use these whenever you want to log on to the Wireless MAXg Router. The user name and password are case-sensitive.
------------- so if you cannot remember the username and password - you will need to reset to fsactory condition and reset all the settings in the router for it to work with your ISP again
the reset button is on the back - RESET Button: To restore the factory default settings, use a paperclip to press in and hold the RESET button for five to ten seconds. If the RESET button is pressed for less than five seconds, the Wireless MAXg Router will reboot.

How do i find my network key or create one for security?

Login to your router and check to see if wireless security is setup:
Use Internet Explorer and type in the address bar.
Login using the password you created when you setup the router.

You can view the wireless security settings and retrieve the key.
If security is not setup you can enable it....directions here:
