I am trying to connect one router to another. Here is the situation:
I have Verizon DSL as my ISP. I had a standard modem for several years and 6 months or so ago I bought a new wireless router. A Belkin N1. Last month my modem went bad and Verizon replaced it with a wireless router. A GT704WG made by Actiontec. I would like to connect my Belkin router to the Verizon one and access the Belkin wirelessly. It seems to be faster and has a better range.
I connected the routers, the WAN port on the Belkin one to an open LAN port on the Verizon one (It seems to only work with a crossover cable), and I can get an internet connection that way on the Belkin router. The problem is that the connection is pretty flaky. It resets it self often and is unusable at other times.
Any help would be much appreciated.
