comment Adding a Second Wireless Router to an Existing Wired Network
HAHA oh wow...well, this is embarrassing. Turns out that I had been plugging in the wireless router into a LAN port that wasn't connected to the primary router...I plugged it into the proper port and this configuration worked without a hitch. Feels much more kosher than using the WAN port on my secondary router or a subnetwork on 192.168.2.x...thanks again guys. Nothing to see here, move along...

Do you have the DHCP server turned off on WRTR? Is its WAN set to DHCP client?

This didn't work :( thanks for the suggestion, though.

comment Adding a Second Wireless Router to an Existing Wired Network
Do I need to setup some static routing configuration on the primary router, to get the secondary router working? Based on there being some sort of configuration present when I type in "ipconfig," I'm thinking that it is trying to connect, but it's just not working. I haven't even gotten to the WiFi part yet, but I'm not worried about that, the new router will be the only WiFi router on the network. Do I need to change the default gateway on the 2nd router to be 192.168.1.1 (the first router)? Somebody mentioned that, but I only see a "default gateway" setting when setting the WAN to static.

On that note, I never see the 2nd router appear in the original router's list of DHCP clients--so would reserving the ip/MAC address even help? Oh god this is driving me mad

I just realized, I'm manually assigning an IP to my 2nd router outside of the original router's DHCP range, while at the same time setting its internet connection to "DHCP." Do I need to change the IP so that it's within the range, and then manually reserve the IP address by editing the settings for the original router?
