If I'm understanding this correctly, you have two routers. One is connected to the internet (we'll call that Router 1) and the second one is daisychained to the first (we'll call this one Router 2). From the sounds of it, you have each on a different subnet and wish to have communication between them.

If this is not correct, then please provide some detail as to the configuration of the router's and their subnets. (ie: they're on the same subnet or different subnets).

If this is correct, you would need to put a path from the network on Router 1 to the network on Router 2 in Router 2's routing table.

actually..this simple scenario...like:
In my company...we have internet...a device is there providing internet to all.....but we expand our office by adding another next office to us.......
So, one router is providing internet to one section with name: GigaSet 504AGU [may be you can get idea with this name about the device] and second device is connected for next office providing internet...that one is CISCO.

Both are working well...providing internet...previously when one office was we had...i checked that i can access the sharing on system connected to router Cisco....but now due to distance between WIFI signals i am unable to access share.

So is this possible that i connect from computer on GigaSet Router to Cisco Router having sharing on a PC...?..

If you're interconnecting the two routers using WiFi I would recommend you use a cable if at all possible.

If that's not possible I would suggest you ensure Bridge mode is enabled on one of them and then check the LAN addresses of both. They should be within the same subnet and the cisco router's Default Gateway IP should be the LAN side of the gigaset. If you have DHCP enabled on the gigaset, it should be disabled on the cisco.

SFahad what is unclear from your post is you say office 2 has internet but it is unclear of that is a different internet than the main office.

If it has no other internet connection than the office1 one, and assuming you have a wired connection between the offices it was a mistake to put in a router. You should have put in a switch instead.

It is possbile to convert the 2nd router into a wifi switch. If you click on CurtR's name he has a how to for doing this.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
