Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have wireless router connected to a wired router in order to connect one of my computers to cox cable. Works great, but when I try to hook my Tivos (I have 2) to the wireless router they can't find Linksys router (both the wired and wired routers are Linksys) Can you help me. C. Greene

Hi blanca,

to resolve your issue, you have to cascade the routers properly.

NOTE:Before you connect a Linksys router to another, make sure that bothhave different IP addresses. This is mandatory because both routers maybe set to the same IP address by default. If both routers have the sameIP address, you need to change the IP address of the second Linksysrouter to prevent any conflict.
There are two ways to cascade a Linksys router to another Linksys router:
  1. Connecting one of the Ethernet ports(LAN ports) of the second Linksys Router to one of the Ethernet ports(LAN ports) of the main Linksys router.
  2. \015\012
  3. Connecting the Internet port (WAN port)of the second Linksys Router to one of the Ethernet ports (LAN ports)of the main Linksys router.
By connecting the second router’s Ethernet port to the main router’sEthernet port, the computers connected to both routers will be on thesame LAN IP segment. This will allow sharing of network resourceswithin the network. For instructions, click here.

By connecting the second router’s Internet port to the main router’sEthernet port, it will be easier to identify which router the computersare connected to since they will have different LAN IP segments. Forinstructions, click here.

NOTE: Before configuring the second router, makesure that it is not connected to the main router, where the broadbandmodem is connected. Then follow these instructions:

Cascading the Linksys Router to Another Linksys Router (LAN-LAN)

To cascade your Linksys router to another Linksys router, you need to perform two steps:

  1. \015\012Connecting a Computer to the Router
  2. \015\012
  3. \015\012Configuring the Router with LAN-to-LAN Connection

NOTE: The steps mentioned should be performed on the second router.

Connecting a Computer to the Router

NOTE: This article assumes that you already havethe main Linksys router working. If the main Linksys router is not yetworking, configure it based on the Internet Service Provider used.
