We have multiple computers (most Win7), game console, iPad,iPod etc on our network, networking was really never a problem.We switched a few weeks ago to mobile Internet, which uses the Netgear MBR1210 modem/router as network access point for all devices. All network users, except two or three, are wireless. Prior to getting the mobile Internet we were on Satellite ISP and used the Linksys 3200 router as access point/network router for our home network (behind the ISP modem).The Netgear modem/router is too far away from my work area in the home, things like my printer, a desktop tower need to be plugged into a router because they are not wireless. The plan is to have the netgear router set up just as a modem/server, turn the wireless off on it, pull one network cable to my Linksys 3200 and use the Linksys as network access point for all devices. Which settings do I have to have on each router to do this? Where do I plug the network cable in between the routers? Do I go from a Lan port on the Netgear to the Wan port on the Linksys?

Which IP settings do I specify? How do I turn the automatic configuration of the Linksys off? Needless to say, I'm a bit lost here. I had contacted a Netgear forum prior, they gave me a little picture on how everything should be hooked up and the settings, but the Linksys router just did not want to work with these settings at all. Secondly, because of all this screwing around with the settings of the Linksys.I uninstalled the cisco connect program for the linksys and removed the original network we had with the linksys. Now the program refuses to install again, cisco connect that is.
