File Sharing and Multiple Routers

3 New Member
I'm looking for a solution but cant seem to find one so far so I was hoping somebody can help.

I just moved into a home that has a wired network already installed. It is all connected to a wired BEFSR81 Linksys Router. Unfortunatly its not a wireless one so in one of the jacks in my house i have a wirless DI-624 D-Link Router piggybacked that will allow my wireless laptops to surf the internet. The problem appears when I want to do file sharing between a wireless laptop and a wired desktop. I'm assuming it is because they are connected to different routers that this is the problem. Is there any settings I can change in either router or is there something different I need to do on either computer.

By the way the two computers are the desktop is running windows vista and the lapotp is running max osx.

Thanks in advance for any help and saving me from having to go buy another wireless router.

Basically what you need to do is turn DHCP off on one of the routers, make sure that the router with DHCP off is plugged into the router with DHCP turned on. This effectively makes the router into a switch.

Here is a link to a tutorial for connecting multiple routers

I only know a little bit about networking so... I have 2 routers, 5 computers and a cable modem. I thought all I had to do was plug the cable modem into the WAN slot of one router. Connect a regular port on the router to the WAN slot of the other router. And plug in the computers into any of the free jacks. But that didn't work. Everyone on the same router could see each other but couldn't see the others. Still had internet access though. ...
