I just got Fiberoptic internet and have two routers that I need to use to get internet to the entire house and network all the computers and xboxs together.
Here is how I am set up and my problem.
Internet to.. Wired Routers WAN Port
Linksys 4 port Router/switch Connection Type PPPoe User Name, Password - (To access Fiberoptic) Router IP 192.168.1.1 Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 Lan Port 1 - To The Linksys Wireless Routers (WAN Port) Lan Port 2-4 - Computers and Xbox
Linksys Wireless Ip 192.168.2.1 Subnet Msk 255.255.255.0 Lan Port 1 - Xbox Wireless - Computer, Laptops Everybody can get the internet but the xboxs can't see the computers if they are on the other router they are not connected to.
I have hear things about turning off DCHP on wireless router but that doesn't seem to be working. Any step by step advice?

connect the second router through a normal switch port, not the wan port. Turn off dhcp on the second router to make it act as just a switch.
Instead of DCHP what other settings do I use on the second router. Static IP or anything like that?
