Configuring two routers

#1

Anyone knows how to configure 2 routers plunged in with an Ethernet connection.

The routers are working fine when i plug in the Ethernet connection but the problem is i cannot set a password for accessing the wireless network for the second router.

First router is speed touch

Second router is d-link 655

And the are plunged in together

Hi,
what is the reason to couple both routers?

You may try this:

  • couple the routers using the LAN ports only (do not use the WAN/DSL connector)
  • disable the DHCP server on one of both routers
  • give the other router a fixed IP that is in the network range covered by your other router.
  • you should also have only one wireless access point enabled.

If the second router has no bridge/repeater support you can do nothing.
