    Hello all,

    I am very new to networking so grasping concepts at my end might need some patience, I apologise now:D

    I cant seem to get this setup to work so I will descibe what I am tryng to achieve and hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

    In terms of IP of different devices I dont really care what I use I will leave that freedom to whoever produces a solution, this only device I cant change is my ADSL router due to lost password :S.

    The setup is as follows

    There is the modem (D-Link) ADSL connected to the first router via CAT 5 Cable

    This router produces a wireless network for 4 PC's, it also connection via Cat 5 cable to the second router.

    This router also produces a wireless network for another 4 PC's

    The wireless networks need to be seperate.

    Also I am aware the ports at the back of the router may affect settings so any solutions containing CAT 5 cable, if the port on the router the cable needs to be connected to could be specified it would be great!

    The reason I am using two routers in to improve wireless network signal strength as the building in large in size with many walls!

    I understand I think it maybe possible to connect the two routers via wireless which is an option I am interested in testing but I am aware this would use up valuable wireless bandwidth! If anyone knows how to achieve either setup, preferably the wired version it would be greatly appreciated!

    Any information explaining any of the setup would also be massively appreciated so I can build a foundation for future learning :D

    Thanks fot your time!

    thats a pretty easy setup you pretty much answered your own question in your post...

    connec cat-5 cable from a lan port on the first router/ADSL router to a second router's lan port, turn off DHCP and all that jazz on the second router and thats it.
