Question about Computers & Internet
I am trying to install two linksys router using one Linksys modem.
Also, how can I secure the network connection?
Can you help?
Get one router working first with the modem following the standard instructions. If you've been messing with the router settings, use the Reset procedure described in the manual.
When your computer is able to access the internet, you've got the first router working.
I assume you want the second router to make more ethernet ports available.
Disconnect the computer from the first router, and plug it into the second. DONT CONNECT IT TO THE MODEM.
Again, reset it to the factory defaults. Open your browser and type in 192.168.1.1 and login to the router. Find the DHCP server setting, and disable DHCP.
Get another ethernet cable and connect it to one of the ethernet ports on the first router, and the other end to an ethernet port on the second router. DONT USE THE WAN PORT.
Unplug each router, then replug them.
You should now be able to use any of the ethernet ports on either router (reboot your PC after doing the above).
