Specs: Windows XP/Windows Vista Home
I have 2 Linksys WRT54GS routers cascaded behind a motorola cable modem. I am able to fully connect to the internet as well as use my laptop to connect to VPN. I have 4 PC's connect to the routers 3 to the primary 1 to the secondary In addition I have 2 network printers connected to the secondary. 1 EPSON WorkForce 600 and a Brother HL2070-N. The IP address are dynamically allocated for each device on the router. Both of the router wireless connectivity have been disable. Now here is the problem the only PC that can print to either printer is the 1 that is connect to the same router as the printers. How do I get the PC's attahced to the primary router to see the printers on the secondary? The operating systems on the PC's are Windows XP and Windows Vista Home

you connected the second router via its wan port to the first router, right?

To do what you want you need to connect from 1st router lan port to 2nd router lan port.

You enable dhcp on the first router and disable it on the 2nd
