    So what is your question? How to use 2 routers in a network? It's 11:27 here. The more info you provide on this the better we can help you. The URL for your image is incomplete. Can you provide the full link?

    Why do you need 2 routers? Can you go wireless?

    What is the 16 slot switch for? One wireless router could do this. I have one router and 4 workstations both wired and wireless. The image lnk worked thanks

    and i knew someone would would ask.. when the network was put in place we didnt have a long cable to reach to computer 3(side by side) so we conected two cables with the switch... witch came in handy when computer 2 was conected to the network...

    What is really in place now is everything but the second router... the computer 4 and 3 is just connected to the switch, the laptop only works near the router one

    Just connect the first routers LAN ports to the other second routers uplink port

    Try this configuration and see if it works. The first router handles the "hand shaking" and the second router is essentially just a switch. Linksys should have information on this too

    Will the wireless and the wired both work on the AP?
