    how do I config the #2 WRT54G router to work
    I've been told I need to "bridging mode" or "pass through" for the HARDWIRED lynksys WRT54G to work.
    I can find wirless bridging mode tuts, but no hardwired ones

    (I can't remember how I got #3 to work)

    I can see and can use my Xbox 360 in the list of devices on my windows 8 computer, I can [PLAY TO] it just fine.

    I need another computer in my office so I added a HARDWIRED Linksys WRT54G hard router to split the internet connection. after its hooked up, I have an internet connection but the XBOX360 device goes offline. plug the RJ45 back into my computer directly its online again. so this means my router in not configured correctly.

    I read the post on Linksys WRT54G thread ( http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/...dware/02-routers/linksys/f/3090/t/366527.aspx )

    there is so much stuff in that post. What exactly do I need to do to my router?

    Thanks

    Make life easier thus

    == router#1 (lan slot) ----- (lan slot) router#2(other lan slots)
    and leave router#2 WAN slot EMPTY.

    Router#2 must have its DHCP disabled which allows #1 to hand out all IP assignments.

    I run this myself :)

    My router#1 has an LAN address of 192.168.0.1
    and I set router#2 LAN address to 192.168.1.1

    and that allows me to access either router by using its LAN ip address as a browser URL .
