Router cascading


This is not a linux specific question, but I got 2 routers a wired one and a wireless one, I want to do what is called a cascade set up where one router act as the real router and the second act as a bridge.

I want to have the wireless router on a better position within the house. But I have some dobuts about how the setup should be configured.

I have router one with no issues connected to the DSL, then I configure the wireless one to be a DHCP and thats when start getting wrong, I cant just seem the writed one to assign an IP to it.

The wrieless one doesnt show on the DHCP table and here are my questions.

Where (which port) should I plug the ehternet to the wireless socket. Internet 1,2,3,4

Second, should it be DHCP or static IP or it really doesnt matter, should I look for some other parameter to configure?
Thanks.

Okay let me see if I got this straight. You want to move the wireless router to a better location in the house but still have all computer to be on the same class c netowrk so they can see each other. This is what you want to do.
Leave the wired router as it is and also turn on dhcp with ip address 100-150 on it if this is needed.
Now I am going to define the class C on the lan side as 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0
Since not posting this info I will use it as the example from here on. You change any refernece of 192.168.1.* to yours which may be 192.168.0.*


On the wireless router configure the wan side to an IP like 192.168.10.10 and a gateway of 192.168.10.1. Thw wan port is never used just need to dfine it to get going. Now on the lan side set the ip to 192.168.1.10. More than likely the wired router IP is 192.168.1.1


Now run a an ethernet cable from wireless lan port 1 to wired lan port 1. If none of the ports have an uplink switch then you need to use a crossover cable. Only one of them needs to have the port switch to uplink and use that port it could be #4.

Turn everything on. Computers will get there IP from the wired dhcp server whether wired or wireless. Depending on the wireless it might be best to run dhcp on it and not on the wired router.

your reply helped me too.

I read your reply and found it helped me to cascade a second router to my system. My 4 hole router needed more ports so using the crossover cable enabled me to add the second router for more computers.
Thanks.
