2 routers in network

My configuration:

 

1st router:

WAN: IP assigned from cable modem

LAN: 192.168.1.1

Subnet: 255.255.255.0

Gateway: 192.168.1.1

DHCP range: 192.168.1.100 - 192.168.1.150

 

2nd router

WAN: 192.168.1.101 assigned from first router

LAN: 192.168.2.1

Gateway: 255.255.255.0

DHCP range: 192.168.2.100 - 192.168.2.150

 

I have 8 computers. 4 of which are servers and the other 4 are desktops. I want to seperate them using subnets. I will be protecting those 4 servers with a firewall. I have done it before, but I forgot how to configure it. I've tried putting the 2nd router's WAN IP in DMZ mode on the first router, but that didn't work either. All computers will need to access the internet; including the ones behind the 2nd router.

 

Does the 2nd router need a different subnet mask? gateway? I need some help please.

 

Thanks

2nd router

WAN: 192.168.1.101 assigned from first router

LAN: 192.168.2.1

Gateway: 255.255.255.0

DHCP range: 192.168.2.100 - 192.168.2.150

 

Your gateway should be the LAN IP of the First router.

The LAN IP and netmask should be equal to 192.168.1.0/24 on the First router... Meaning 192.168.1.x and 255.255.255.0

As for the second Router, LAN IP 192.168.2.0/24 (192.168.2.x and 255.255.255.0), DHCP Assigned for WAN IP.

 

With that setup you shouldn't have a problem accessing the interwebs from either.

 

Can you access the net via the first router...?

Can you access PC's on the first routers LAN from a PC on the Second routers LAN...?

 

Answer me these and i may be able to assist you further.
