post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, i have comcast cable, and i have a dlink router hooked up to that. the whole house is wired with cat5 so we have jacks in all our rooms. in my computer room, i have another buffalo router, and have all my computers hooked up to it.

my problem is, i cannot access computers that are on the dlink router, i can only access the ones on the buffalo. i know there is a way to change this, but how?

Replace the Buffalo router with a standard network switch... Easiest solution

In your situation, I assume that you've got a connection from a D-Link LAN port to the Buffalo WAN port. If so, you're dealing with two separate network subnets.

Not hard to set it up properly if you know a bit of networking; but just replacing the Buffalo router with a network switch (in essence going to a single subnet) is the easiest way to go...
