I have two routers (Linksys E4200 and Cisco Valet m310). I want to cascade these two router in Lan to Wan configuration which I already know how to do. The only thing that I'am not sure about. When going from Lan to Wan do the SSID have on both routers have to match. in other words The SSID on my main router X0 does the SSID on the router that I'am cascading to have to be X0 as well or can I change it to to X1 for example. Thanks

They can be different. It's like setting up a guest account in most new routers.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

It depends what you want to do, it can work either way.  Check out this page for how to set up two routers with the same SSID.  The advantage of setting them up with the same SSID is that you only have to configure one wireless network on your devices and if one goes down or you move out of its range it will connect to the other.
