You can't convert the second router into a hub. The router has built-in
*switch* technology. You disable the DHCP server on the router and it
becomes a wire/wap *switch*. http://www.homenethelp.com/web/expla...d-switches.asp
If you follow the instruction in the link for the Linksys routers, replacing
your two routers in the example, you'll make the connection, as the
principles are the same for the two routers when the second router becomes a
switch no matter what kind of router, make, model wire or wireless.
You configure the second router to use a static IP on the getaway router,
and you use LAN ports on both routers. http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/...hp?p_faqid=358
