Pretty sure I have seen that router before and didn't know it has a uplink port. Normally uplink ports do not require a crossover. Sometimes they have a small switch that allows crossover or normal.
Plug into the router and log on to the web interface and see the settings. Then connect to all ports to make sure they all work. Then with dhcp disabled connect to the next router. The computer has to be on the same subnet. Then see if you can access the router's web interface.
I read it wrong and answer it wrong too. So get off my case you peanut.
