Setting up 2 LANS that can use the internet through same cable modem
 
I'm looking to setup two distinct LANs (that can't talk to one another), but can access the internet through the same cable modem connection.

I have two Linksys BEFSR41 Hub/Routers. I already have one of the routers hooked up. I have two client computers connected, and the WAN port on the router connects to the cable modem. Linksys support told me to connect the WAN port of the second router, to a regular port on the first to accomplish the above. I did so, but the second router does not have access to the internet. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks ahead.

If you left the settings on the second router at defaults, its going to be sending out the same subnet as it has coming in, and I don't think those things can bridge by default. You'll want to set the slaved router to acquire its external IP through DHCP, and then set the subnet that it routes for to something like 192.168.2.x instead of the default 192.168.1.x

That's probably the first problem.

Cheers,
