I need help configuring 2 routers for my home internet please. My principal router is also a modem ( Vodafone.de - Kabeldeutschland modem/router )and my second router is from Linksys. Both have wireless capabilities.
I have actually managed to connect them and I have cable/wireless internet on both routers but i'm asking for your help because I know I have configured something wrong because internet disconnects frequently on every device connected to both routers.
I don't know if I should do a LAN- LAN or LAN- WAN connection but from what I see, I have done a LAN- WAN. Currently my first router has a Lease time of 1hour. One more thing :D my laptop is always connected to the second router and when I connect it to the first one, it doesn't have internet.
Sorry for the long post. Just trying to give you as much details as possible. Thank you in advance
The first router/modem gets internet from a coaxial cable. Local ip address is
192.168.0.1 and subnet mask
255.255.255.0. The first router/modem gives ip from
192.168.0.254 An ethernet cable connects an ethernet port of the first modem with the internet port of the second modem ( so I guess its a LAN-WAN connection ).
The second router local ip is
192.168.1.1 and subnet mask
255.255.255.0 . The second router has DHCP enabled and gives ip from
192.168.1.100 Now, if someone cares enough to help, I am grateful, if not, please refrain yourself from giving useless comments please
