have the following set up: cable modem>wifirouter>gigabit ethernet switch>to 16 ports throughout house. When I connect a second wifi router to any port around the house, the internet does not work with connecting to that specific router, however, if I use a lan cable and connect direct with my mac or cpu, internet works fine. wifi routers are not communicating with lag ports

if the second router is a TPlink too, you need to change the LAN IP of the second router to since the WAN and LAN IP cannot be of the same IP scheme.

if you just need another Access Point, configure the second router as such.
