You can run the Cisco connect software ( CD ) to configure your main router.
The default IP address of the main E3000 router will be 192.168.1.1.
Now connect one computer to Ethernet port on second E3000 router. Open the setup page of seconds E3000 router. Change the Local IP address to 192.168.1.2 and disable the DHCP server. Save the settings.
Now connect the Ethernet cable from main E3000 to Ethernet port on Second E3000 router.
This way seconds E3000 router will be configured as access point.
Now connect one computer to Ethernet port on third E3000 router. Open the setup page of third E3000 router. Change the Local IP address to 192.168.1.3 and disable the DHCP server. Save the settings.
Now connect the Ethernet cable from main E3000 to Ethernet port on third E3000 router.
This way third E3000 router will be configured as access point.
