i have two routers in my network..

so the setup is like

Internet
---------
Router 1
---------
---- 4 Machines
--------
Router 2
--------
---- 4 Machines

now the problem is since i use different subnets for these two routers, the two networks dont read each other...

but i'm able to access the internet using "Router 1's" gateway

what do u think i'm missing in this setup to access router 1's network?

here is the ip config (all static for security and other reasons)

Router 1:
-----------
LAN:
10.1.1.1
255.0.0.0
Gateway:
10.1.1.1
WAN:
DHCP

Router 2:
-----------
LAN:
10.1.1.10
255.0.0.0
Gateway:
10.1.1.1

advise please.

If you use different subnets they are on two different networks.

How are the computers setup?

Are they in the same or different Workgroups?

change the ip and subnet on the second router to fit into the range of the first router, but give router 2 a static ip of something other than router 1. make all your computers static for better management and map some drives going through windows explorer and searching for them in your address bar by typing \\ and then the computer name. ex: \\upstairs computer. this way you can keep the workgroups different if you want.
post back if you have any questions

I'd suggest that you use router 2 as a gateway for router one. This effectively expands your network to one big happy network with no subnets.

The problems you'll encounter will be with conflicting IP addresses - and the solution is to disable DHCP on the gateway router and use static IP's.

You'll get better information about how to do this from the maker of the routers.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
