I've got a cable modem (A) which is also a wireless router and a dd-wrt wireless router (B).

I've connected (B)'s "internet" port to one of (A)'s local ports.

I can connect to (B) over the air just fine, but when connected, cannot connect to the internet.

Questions like How to bring Internet to a DD-WRT router from another router? seem to indicate I shouldn't have to do anything at all.

  • Did you disable B's DHCP server? – David Schwartz Jun 19 '14 at 5:48

You connect the WAN port of router B to a LAN port on router A. You have to set the WAN address to DHCP and take whatever address router A issues to it. Set router B to have a network address range different then router A.
