By davidofgold ·
Hi folks,

i connected router_1 (a linksys wrt150N wireless) to a VSAT modem with a fix IP. Router_2(a linksys wrt54GL) is connected via cable to the ethernet port of of router_1.
the issue is, i cant share printer and files between PCs on router_1 and those on router_2. i need help here. thanks.

Port Forwarding

either enable port forwarding on Router 2 - when you put one router behind another, the connections only go one way,

or if the printer and files are on a server, you might connect the server to the DMZ port and enable DMZ on Router 2.
