connecting two routers

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have two wireless routers, one Netgear and one Linksys. as of now, the linksys is connected to the netgear as a client. Basically, it acts as a wireless card. The problem is, I am conected to the main router, the netgear, and I can't get control of the devices between the linksys.

Would a static route be sufficient? I have an FTP server behind the linksys, I am not able to connect to it.

Let me try and get this straight:

Quote:
Internet --> netgear --> your pc

(wireless link to netgear)

linksys --> FTP server
What type of router is the linksys, only certain models have the bridging software built into them. Other models can be flashed, but I don't have that info handy. You said you can't control the FTP server, but can the FTP server "see" your other pc?

Ok, I've figured it out, I just allow the main router to set IP's using DHCP to clients behind the Linksys. Thanks anyway.
