Re: New cheap wired router problems
Well honestly I have a quick question for you. Why are you using two routers insted of a router and a hub, or more better a router and a switch. Because with two routers you are going to have a lot of problems that you are experiencing now, because the one router at your dads house is taking the IP address from your ISP and splitting it off between those ports on that router and then the one that goes to your house is splitting again, and the firewalls and the way a router splits these packets are what is causing you to loose connectivity.
If you went with a hub or a switch I perosnally believe you would see alot of better performance, mostly a switch, I do not recommend a Hub, because of their lack of collision avoidance and slow bandwidth they provide, but they are a cheaper alternative and will work, just not as good as a switch or bridge.
