I would like to set up a home network with two routers in order to expand my coverage and also have an additional number of ethernet ports. For simplicity, I will refer to two routers as Router A and Router B.
I would like to connect Router A to the cable modem, and then connect Router B to Router A using an ethernet cable. Router A is a Linksys E2000. Router B is a D-Link DIR-615 C1. Both Routers run DD-WRT.
I'm wondering how to go about this? Will it be tricky? My naive thought would be to simply hook a cable up between one of the ethernet ports on Router A, and the Internet port on Router B.
Update: Followed the answers and disabled DHCP on Router B. I can now connect to the internet through a wired connection that runs through Router B. If anyone has time, I have some quick follow-up questions:
1) Does Router A assign an IP address to Router B? Is there a benefit of making this static?
2) Is there a way to use Router B as a Range Extender for my Wireless Network?
3) When I connect to Router B through a wired connection, how can I access it's settings page (when I type in 192.168.1.1 it automatically goes to the settings page of Router A)
