We have the username and password information for both routers. I will not share them in an open forum such as this.

Ok i will do a Lan to Lan setup:

These are only examples your terminolgy for the routers may be different, and IP addresses may be different, wireless settings may be different.

Router 1(Connected to the internet)

Navigate to it's IP address
Log in using username and password

Wireless Setting:

Wireless Mode:
Mixed b/g/n
Wireless Bandwidth: 20Mhz
Channel: 6(not Auto)

Wireless security:

Algorythm: AES
Network Key: 12345678

LanSetup(DHCP SERVER) Look at the start and End On Router 2 you give it IP address either or or above etc, outside of the scope of the DHCP server on router 1.

Make a NOTE of these

Router 2:

Wireless setting:

Wireless Mode:
match router 1
Wireless Bandwidth: match router 1
Channel: match router 1 (not auto)

Wireless security:
Authentification: Match router 1
Algorythm: Match router 1
Network key: Match router 1

Disable DHCP

IP address:

Re-boot router.

Turn off both routers.

Connect ethernet cable to WAN port of Router 1.

Connect ethernet cable from Lan port on router 1 to router 2 Lan port.

Turn on router 1 wait until it is fully booted.
Turn on router 2 wait until it is fully booted.
Connect switchs or computers.
Check for internet access.

Best to do this outside of office hours so it does not disrupt anyone.

Hope this helps>
