1. What is the intended purpose of this configuration? Do you need wireless at two seperate locations or running an A router instead of a B or G?

2. You likely will need to either change the mode of the 2nd router to be an access point and/or change its local IP to 192.168.2.1 . I'm making some assumptions here that you are wiring the 2 routers together and not expecting to use one as a wireless repeater.

With routers you're dealing with 2 IPs. The one assigned to it (normally by DHCP) and the one the rest of the devices below it will see it as (the local IP). In this case I'm betting you will need to change the local IP to something different (I recommended 192.168.2.1).
