for the ethernet connection between the two routers are you using a normal ethernet cable? i believe you need a crossover cable to connect from a router to a router

It can be done and you may or may not need a crossover cable. It really depends on what you are using. It is a pain to try to get everything working too. I managed to do it with mine, but it would not work with the older version of the router. I ended up trying various combinations to get it connected. It turned out that using the wan port on the wireless router did not work and I had to use a regular port.

I have it setup this way because I have a dialup modem on the main router. I can't get DSL and I got sick of the lies by the cable company.
