Could anybody help me what kind of ethernet cable do I use to connect my Linksys E1000 to another Wireless-N modem/router? Is it straight through, standard fly lead or cross-over cable? How do I set it up? Please help... Thanks

A CAT5e patch cable will work fine, connect from LAN port to LAN port. Also be sure to turn off the DHCP on one and configure that spare as an AP unless you want a distinct subnet that does not see the main network.

Hello Realbeast,
I tried to turn off the DHCP but it does not worked. Below is the Status of my network;
Ethernet is currently active and has the IP address
Configure IPv4: Using DHCP
IP Address:

How do I configure the LAN connected Linksys E1000 wireless router?
Please help.
Thank you.

Let's keep your old router as your main router for this discussion (although you could reverse them). You must turn off DHCP in the E1000 or it will not work as an AP . Here is a step by step description of how to configure the E1000 in an LAN to LAN "cascade" that will turn the E1000 into a wireless access point:

Is this what you are trying to do? You need to describe very specifically what you want for an end result, as you can make it an AP or a different subnet that cannot see the original network, which would be used for security reasons.
