hi, i currently have a smc cable/router with computers connected to the lan ports. i added a linksys router to one of the ports on the smc. i can access the internet just fine through the ports on the linksys router and wireless also. but the computers on the linksys router cannot access the computers connected to the smc router.

Don't use a router, use a switch or convert the router to a switch.

Check Vlans or try to ping the second router from the first one,if that fails then it is a configuration problem between the routers.

Change the IP address to be in the same range as the SMC router, disable DHCP and connect the cable from the SMC router to a LAN port on the Linksys.

192.168.0.2 if the DHCP Range on the SMC doesn't start at 192.168.0.2.
