We connected the cables properly, but for some reason the internet and networking will not work on either routers when both are connected to each other? is there any special thing i am supposed to configure? I am really confused and need to resolve this issue ASAP. and netgear tech support is terrible and i dont ever want to deal with them again... i got an indian who barely spook english, and how no idea what he was talking about or anything.. so i just have to deal with this on my own.. any help would be appreciated. Thanx
First off these are routers, not switches.
Generally you dont have two routers on the same network. However you do. If you really want, you can make your router act like a cheap switch, however I do not recomend this.
I recomend grabbing a switch, one like this would suffice http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833122004
Much cheaper than routers and they do exactly what you want
Their are cheaper switches as well, and these will do fine. I'm just showing an example.
