Hey,i have the following connection:
ISP -> router1 -> router2
router1 -> PC
I've had the routers work at the same time before, router2 being just an access point, DHCP disabled, etc.
I moved them around a bit and router2 stopped working, so i went ahead and reconfigured it, assigned 192.168.0.2 to it (router1 is 192.168.0.1 ), disabled DHCP, added reserved ip on router1, etc.
My problem is, internet works on router2, but i can't acces router2 from router1 or router1 from router2 (the control/user interface) like before. Am i missing something?

eg.: Im on my PC connected to router1, going on browser with the link 192.168.0.2 opened the config interface (settings) for router2. Now it only times out.
Edit: found a tiny switch on the back of the router, flipped it, now it works, thanks for replying anyways ! :)

Interesting about the switch--glad you got it working.

But something to consider about your setup is that both of your routers really should be access points if the isp router is handling the routing, unless it is just terrible at that.
