      Trying to add a second router ; ;

      Hi I am literately at my wits end here so I hope somebody can help me.

      I have the Sky Sagem router downstairs which is connected to various things. I also have a super long ethernet cable going to the other side of the house. I have added my old Linksys router to the end of this ethernet cable (WAN Port) and I can access the internet from the PC that is plugged into the Linksys router (LAN Port).

      However I can not get my pc that is on the Linksys router to find my PC on the Sky Sagem router. If I plug the ethernet from the Sky Sagem into the PC directly then they can find each other and I can access/swap files between the 2 PC's no problem. It seems as though the routers have set up there own "home" networks so won't play nicely but I have no idea how to fix this.

      I have read about so many things to try and do and it all seems gibberish to me. Some people say just disable DHCP on Linksys router and plug the Ethernet from Sagem into the LAN Port of the Linksys then add PC to other LAN port but then I couldn't access the internet on the PC.

      Has someone got a step by step idiots guide to adding a 2nd router via ethernet and so that my PC's will both be on the same network so I swap/access the files between them?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated

      On the sky router:
      Change DHCP Scope/Range to 192.168.0.3 to 192.168.0.254

      On the Linksys:
      Disable DHCP
      Change the IP Address to 192.168.0.2

      That's it.

      Thanks for that do I need to set the Linksys to router mode or leave it on gateway? Also do I plug the Ethernet from the sky router into the WAN or LAN port on the Linksys?

      Connect to a LAN port and it doesnt matter on the mode the router is set to.
