Question
I have 2 routers in my LAN, 1 is a modem/Router, the 2nd is a Router/Wireless AP, the first routers IP is 192.168.0.1 the 2nd Routers IP when plugged into first router is 192.168.2.1. My machine is running on DHCP reserved IP 192.168.0.3 how can I access the login page to the 2nd router (192.168.2.1)? When I try currently, It times out.

Answer
Hi David,

Many thanks for your question.
The two routers will need to be connected
on the same subnet i.e. back to back
router connections:

192.168.0.1 >>>>>  192.168.0.2
with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 for instance.

You'll also need a crossover Ethernet cable if you
hard-wire the routers together. Also, any hosts
subsequently attaching to the routers will need to
be on a different network as they will overlap
with the router's network.

Regards,

Scott
