Multiple Routers please help
I have no idea what to do and I have a CCNA which is sad.
My 4 port switch recently broke from a storm surge, and the only thing I have until my new one comes in the mail is a wireless router. Basically I can only connect to the internet when connected to the router acting as a switch. Whereas before I could connect on the other wireless router just fine.
Gateway(modem/router) -> Wireless router 1 ( using for switch) -> to a switch in my room -> to another wireless router 2.
The Gateway is configured for 192.168.254.0, the first wireless router will not allow me to set it to the same subnet for some reason, I can only connect to the internet if its on the .0. subnet. And there is NO internet on the second connection. I have tried everything, disabling DHCP, changing subnets, and toyed a little with the advance routing feature but have little knowledge on it and google has nothing on the, ( gateway or router mode ).
How can I set it up so that router one is used as a switch with wireless off, and router 2 is the DHCP server, wireless connection, and everything else?thanks !!
