here's the gist, i have (2) routers here and (4) comps to network. thing is, two computers are in a seperate room from the other two. I hooked up everything for two computers in the den and they are off and running on that router. NOW here's where my ignorance may shine with two or more routers, I hooked a cable up to #3 ethernet port on the router in the den so it can have a connection to the OTHER router in the bedroom, plugged in to the (internet) port on the back of bedroom router. then i hooked my 2 bedroom comps into the respective ethernet slots and turned the systems on. but poo poo its not working when i web search with the bedroom systems. reason why im doing this to begin with is because i dont have enough cable length for the 2 systems in the bedroom to reach my den ethernet, so i figured with a second router in hand, i can just use what i have and try to make it work. I have a few hunches as to why its not working, but i may need a little input from some network gurus.
