Network Configuartion

I have an linksys ADSL2NUE modem running in Bridge Modem with a Linksys BEFSR41 Router at 1992.168.2.1 configured using PPPoe. This configuartion works fine. I now want to add a second BEFSR41 Router with an IP of 192,.168.3.1. DHCP would be configured on both router.

How do I configure the second router so it can access the net through the first router.

Hello Seymourgf,

Put a cable between those (UTP) and configure default gateway on the first one to be 192.168.2.1.

Does that work if I have a static IP address ?

I tried to confifire the second router with a static Ip address but it would not accept any values for the default gateway
Hello Seymourgf,

This is how I think it should be setup:

The WAN interface on the 2nd router should be connected to the first router LAN interface, and it should have an IP address in the 192.168.2.0/24 range (this can be DHCP assigned by the first router) and the default gateway of the 2nd router should then be set to 192.168.2.1.  Any host connected to the LAN interface of the second router should ofc use the second router's LAN ip (192.168.3.1) as their default gateway.

Yeah, well, it depends on the router. Normally it should work with a static IP, although you could as well choose to have your uplink port get the IP from the 1st router's DHCP.

Oh, i'm so sorry. I meant default gateway on the SECOND one of course.
My apologies.

Let's recap.

1st router: gets IP from ISP.
2nd Router's WAN gets IP from first router (with autoassigned default gateway or manual gateway pointing to 192.168.2.1). Has another IP alias of 192.168.3.1 and a DHCP pool of 192.168.3.2-254/24 which it assigns to its clients. its clients in turn get default gateway of 192.168.3.1.

My apologies for the mistake once again.

The problem I hace is how do i define the second router ?

Do I give it a static IP address ? If so what the first router's ip, subnet mask  with the default gateway being the first router's Ip
or do I give the static Ip and sunnet mask as provided by my ISP. In which case what should the default gateway be
