    Hey guys,


    Well, this is my story.


    Originally I had only 1 PC in my living room - so it was "easy peasy" to put a cable from my D-Link wireless router to the PC on the other side of the room.


    But, I did decide to have another 3 PC-s that will work 24-7 running SeNuke.


    In order make it work I bought another 8-port router and kvn switch (in my case, allows to operate 4 PC-s with a single mouse, keyboard and monitor).


    This is a simple scheme I have now:

    Once I restart the Netgear router internet works on 1 pc, but when I try it on another PC the screen comes up "(192.168.0.108) is managing your device", and after that even internet on the 1st pc stops working (gives out the same message).


    + my satellite receiver is having occasional connection problems while these experiments.


    Any suggestions?


    I heard that maybe I have to use the mac address of the 1st router in 2nd, but haven't got any decent ideas myself :?

    another suggestion was to follow instructions here: http://www.howtogeek.com/51772/how-to-setup-a-vpn-server-using-a-dd-wrt-router/ , but hey - mine are ordinary duo core pc-s and I'm not building vpn :?

    :) yeah, have to admit - networking is my weakness (the area I know very, very basic things), but nobody knows everything :)


    please help (blush)

    well - it looks like I will buy a gigabit switch instead of using my router.
