  1. I have an SMC broadband router, SMC2804WBRP-G, connected to my cable connection. I have 3 computers hardwired to the router. In one room I would like to split that connection using a Belkin broadband router, F5D6230-3. However, I cannot get a recognized connection to the computer hooked to the Belkin. I know it is entirely about the fact that both routers have an IP address of 192.168.2.1 but there is no vendor supplied information, that I can find, on what has to be changed configuration wise to the routers.

    Does anyone know how to change the configurations to accommplish this?

    It has been asked some five times on these forums.. Please search.

    Also, you would be much better off just buying a simple ethernet switch and using that instead of the second router.
