The second router will have to be connected and setup properly.

First, go into your router and find the DHCP scope and it's IP address and make note of them. Generally speaking, the scope on most SOHO routers is something like the following: to

Continuing with the above example, your router's IP will most likely be

Now, using a crossover cable, connect from a LAN port on your router to a LAN port on the other router and configure the LAN IP address of the second router to be within the same subnet, but outside the DHCP scope on your router.

Following the above example, the TCP/IP settings for the LAN side of the second router should look something like the following:

Subnet Mask:

Now configure a DHCP scope on the other router something like: to

This way your scopes are separate, each router has a unique IP and everybody connected, and the routers themselves, should all be communicating, and accessing the internet properly.

I just need to ask one more thing.....
Since I am a novice in such stuff.....
I wish to confirm that i need to change such thing in Internet
Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)?
Also i need to know what is DHCP and from where i can
change the DHCP scope as referred by you?
Do I have to give the same IP, Subnet Mask & Gateway as is
provided by the Internet Provider.
And do I need to give the DNS Server or just check the radio
box to obtain it automatically.(I have the DNS server
I would be thankful to u if u wud help me sort it out............
