by not having the second Router connected in any way to the first Router.
Without that connectivity you will continue to have this problem.
What is the possibility of running an ethernet cable from the first to the second router?
Are your Linksys routers capable of connecting, and thus extending, an existing wireless network?
I have 2 Linksys Wireless Routers. One router is Internet connected to the cable ISP. But, because of where they located the cable MODEM on one side of the house, I set up another router on the other side of the house where my printer is located. They both have the same gateway address. I know, it's dumb. I just haven't put the time into resolving this issue, and the issue is this.
When I want to use the web, I connect to the wireless network that let's me get out. Then, on that rare occasion when I print something on paper (so 20th century) I have to disconnect from the Internet and connect to the wireless network to print. Then, I get to re-connect to the wireless Internet to get back out. How can I set up the wireless router that is connected to the printer so the printer will show up in the print dialog while I am connected to the ISP connected wireless router without having to do this network dance every time I want to print something. Much appreciate any help you can provide here.
