Im new in this forum and need some help setting up a new router e4200.
I have a friend with a business and he have 2 routers in their business but they dont have wireless so they just want to add wireless to the customers.
how i can set up e4200 just to share internet but not be the main router. I want to put the E4200 behind another router just to share internet.
i think i have to connect the main router Lan port to the cisco e4200 internet port(Yellow port) and have the setting on the E4200 to get automatic Ip address. Im doing the thing right?
Thanks for all your help.

Yes you are right, just connect the E4200 (from the LAN port on one of the router to the Internet (yellow) port of the e4200) and just run the disk on any laptop and it should work. And they won't have any access to the main network.

So there is no Access Point mode on the E4200? Wouldn't they have trouble accessing any network shares without an AP mode if you plug it into the WAN port.

If you want to share the computers in the network then try LAN to LAN connection. So that all the computers will be in the same network.
You will need to change the Local IP address of E4200 and disable the DHCP server on E4200. Connect cable from Ethernet port on main router to the Ethernet port on E4200. In this case all the IP addresses will be assigned by the main router and E4200 will act like a wireless access point.
