Linksys 54WRTGL, DLink DI-524

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi, a have two wireless routers: Linsys
54WRTGL and DLink DI-524. I want to make
two different networks with the same Internet
connection. One network will be a secured,
internal network, the other will be for free
Internet surfing.

The Internet is connected to the Linksys WAN
port, now I want to connect the DLink, but I
have no idea how to connect and configure it
(which type of cable, WAN or LAN port,
dynamic or static WAN settings and DHCP
enabled or disabled, ...).

You'll want to connect from LAN port on the Linksys to the WAN port on the D-Link router. It won't matter what type of cable you use although it would be preferable to use a crossover cable.

You might want to take a look at some 3'd party firwmare for your Linksys WRT54GL router. I myself prefer the tomato firmware. If you follow this link, you'll see at the bottom of the page a listing of several other alternatives.

One you have the D-Link (WAN port) connected to the Linksys (LAN port) the D-Link should take care of the routing between subnets automatically. If not, you'll have to setup a route between yourself.
