Configuring Router as Access Point

May 7, 2009 at 16:05:29
Specs: Windows XP, 2/2
I have a spare Linksys router that I'd like to use as an access point but I'm having trouble getting it to work correctly. It used to work but we had a power outage and everything reset and now it doesn't work anymore.

Right now I have my linksys router downstairs which is my working router and its SSID is called "DOWNSTAIRS". Upstairs I have my other router plugged into a LAN PORT of the Downstairs router by its LAN port. That is, nothing is plugged into the WAN port of my router upstairs. I hit reset a bunch of times on my upstairs router and now I magically have internet but the problem is, I can't access the upstairs router. It's SSID is linksys and I'd like to change it to something else as well as mess around with some other settings but even when I connect to it wirelessly or wired, and go to, it pulls up the downstairs router as if the upstairs router isn't even there.

Did you give the upstairs router a ip address like You should so you can access it. Remember to exclude .2 from your dhcp scope.
