The second computer which is on the second router can connect to first computer which is on the first router. But the first computer cannot connect to the second computer. The first router is a Belkin 802.11g Wireless DSL/Cable Gateway Router. The second router is a Netgear RP614v2. The first router is connected to the cable modem. The LAN IP is 192.168.2.1. The LAN IP for the second router is 192.168.0.1 and it connects to the first router. Both computers can go on the internet. I just want to know how to make it so I can connect to the computers on the second router with the first computer.

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!
