I have a wired bt router (Adsl) with an ethernet port and has internet access on it. I have also wireless cable router(no modem) with no internet connection.
Now i want to do wireless netwoking in my house.
Is it possible for me to run the ethernet cable from bt router into cable modem and have file sharing/internet connection.

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!
