  1. Hello to start with here is a list.

    Router 1 (wired from modem) : IP 192.168.1.1
    Router 2 (wireless): IP 192.168.2.1

    I am trying to get these two routers to see each other while keeping the IP Addresses, Router 1 is the main router, which I want to keep at 192.168.1.1 Router 2 is a wireless one which I also wanted to keep at 192.168.2.1

    How do I get computers on the 192.168.2.1 to see the computers and shared files on the 192.168.1.1

    Any help anyone can give, I would be most grateful, thank you :)

    why force this? life gets easy of you keep them both in the same subnet.

    You can use two routers, have the first one in control and allow wifi on both if
    necessary.

    I'll defer until you clarify your usage . . .
