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 192.168.0.2 to 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

  • Down vote... You have given us no information on how these are connected or technical information on the network(s) that would be needed to troubleshoot this. Plus this topic, or a variant of it, is asked and answered every few days. – acejavelin Feb 27 '16 at 16:13
  • How they connected, wired Ethernet? If so, this is simple, set the IP address of router 2 to 192.168.0.2 (or other IP address outside R1's DHCP range) and disable DHCP in R2, connect Lan to Lan. – acejavelin Feb 27 '16 at 16:21

  • The setup you describe is exactly the same way as mine, also Germany, also cable internet provider (though not vodafone/kabel deutschland). Do the connection problems occur also to wired devices or only if connected wirelessly to the cable-modem/router? – TJJ Feb 27 '16 at 18:26
  • it occurs to wired devices too – kristi Feb 27 '16 at 19:13
