Hello, I had 2 Linksys WRT300n router, my problem is how to connect thoese 2 router to each other so that the Internet connection on Roater A will be shared in Router B. although WRT300n has a wireless connectivity, my other WRT300n is beyond the reach of the wireless range. my plan now is to wired the both to connect each other.

Router A Config

Internet Connection Type: Automatic Configuration - DHCP
Host Name: Blank
Domain Name: Blank
MTU: Auto

NETWORK SET UP
Router IP: 192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

DHCP SEVER SETTINGS

DHCP Server: Enable

MAC ADDRESS CLONE: Disable

Question:

What is suppose to be my Router B configuration in order for me to connect to Router A and Access Internet and Network services.

Thanks

I had this same problem in trying to connect two liveboxes (routers) via ethernet so that router B will use the conection of router A and I can connect with ethernet or wifi to router B.

Took me ages to try and sort out but I used these settings on router B (router A was same as yours)

Router A DHCP range; 192.168.1.9 - 200 (DHCP enabled)
Router A LAN IP 192.168.1.1
Router A broadcast IP 192.168.1.255
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0

Router B DHCP range; 192.168.1.205 - 250 (DHCP enabled)
Router B LAN IP 192.168.1.201
Router B broadcast IP 192.168.1.255
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0

(pretty much like Drew said)

This is working for me so far - only been using the settings for twenty mins though!

Thank you, Oddjob 6

I think for the configure router A to router B it is Essy . Now you follow for me

Router A : have the rang 192.168.1.1 to 254
Router A : LAN 192.168.1.1
Router A : broadcast IP 192.168.1.2 to 254 ( Main router Enable DHCP )

ofter we take network cable plat in from port LAN of the router A to router B port LAN the same
and we config

Router B : Chang LAN 192.168.1.10 ( but Disable DHCP )

we config give client connect from router B can access is DHCP from router A

the answer isn't as complicated as shown above, just connect one of the four ethernet ports of router B to one of the four ethernet ports of the router A no cable in the "internet in port" of router B and configure router B not to use dhcp, The router A wil take care of your dhcp.
In this case router B will act as a good old switch.
I have the same case, but what I want the network of router B to be totally anonymous for router A. I have tried to connect a cable between the 2 routers, where the caple end for router B goes to internet port, and to one of LAN ports for router A.
That didn't work unfortunately. Any Ideas? how to make pcs connected to router B anonymous for Router B? In other words, what I want is to have router A supplies Router B with net, without any control on it's pcs.
you have to configure the static routing, or dynamic routing.
Thanks Smiley that worked like a charm!

router B should have NAT disabled
connect 1LAN port of router A to WAN port of router B
Router A should have static routing fot the network on router B
example:
router A WAN interface
192.168.1.100
255.255.255.0
gateway:192.168.1.1
router A LAN interface
192.168.2.1
255.255.255.0

router B WAN interface
192.168.2.100
255.255.255.0
gateway:192.168.2.1
router B LAN interface
192.168.3.1
255.255.255.0


if you connect a PC to LAN B and you send a ping to router A, router A doesnt know how to send a ping back because he doesnt know where the LAN 192.168.3.0 is!!

you should then configure static routing in router A to tell the router to send any packet that goes to destination 192.168.3.0 mask=255.255.255.0 to gateway 192.168.2.1

this will solve the issue.

Your configuration will lead the router to act as a switch. But what if the router is a wireless router as well, will the wireless works as well???

how to configure a router as a client of another router

Thank you
I'm assuming you would like wireless turned on on both routers for clients but will have coper (ethernet connection) between the two routers. I have instructed you to setup 2 different wireless networks in the below scenario. Even though wireless connectivity is beyond reach, this will ensure you still do not get bleed over between the two wireless networks. I suggested WIFI-A & WIFI-B as your SSIDs but keep your pre-shared keys the same for simplicity. Setup is very simple.

You will first connect your ISP connection to the Internet or WAN port of Router A. Connect your ethernet cable from one of the switch ports (IE Port 1-4) of Router A to one of the switch ports of Router B (IE Port 1-4). The LAN settings of your two routers similar to the following:

Router A DHCP range: 192.168.1.50 - 200 (DHCP enabled)
Router A LAN IP: 192.168.1.1
Router A broadcast IP: 192.168.1.255
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Wireless: WIFI-A

Router B DHCP range: TURN OFF DHCP SERVICE
Router B LAN IP: 192.168.1.5
Router B broadcast IP: 192.168.1.255
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Wireless: WIFI-B
