Problems setting up 2 Wireless Routers

Hi,

I have recently installed a second router in another section of our office that could not recieve wireless from the original router. I am now having IP issues due to the second routers clients not recognising the correct Default Gateway. If I setup the computer to have static IP addresses I can get the computers to work perfectly but I want to use the DHCP server to issue addresses especially on this end of the network.

Is there a way to make the new router just a switch/hub so that computers aquire their IP addresses from the base router which supplies the internet but also keep the wireless working on the second router?

Thanks for you time.

  1. I can't tell from reading your post whether you have connected the two routers by cable or by wireless. Here are a couple of scenarios which may be helpful:
