the Billion router LAN interface is a subnet. That connects to the Prolink wireless WAN interface. The Prolink WAN interface can obtain an IP from the Billion [don't know if the DHCP on the Billion will provide gateway and DNS to the Prolink. If not, you'll have to manually imput them. The Prolink LAN is a seperate subnet from the Billion LAN. Therefore you need to change the default subnet on the Prolink to something different. Like a subnet mask Default gateway for comps behind the Prolink is the Prolink router IP address. I believe that consumer level routers have RIP2 and you should enable it so that both routers can see and exchange routing information with each other.

your problem is that you have a wireless router and not a wireless access point. With a router you've created two networks [2 different subnets]. If you return the router and get an access point you can do away with having two networks [subnets]. Access points are not routers and fit into the existing network subnet eliminating the problem your having with wireless connections by using 2 routers.
