I have been using Linksys WRT160 N in the past and had one wifi connection at home. I have recently purchased a Linksys E1200 and trying to set up a new wifi connection with a different broadband provider - the first one will still be active and is working fine. I am unable to configure the second wifi connection and I suspect its due to the IP conflict, since the first connection uses the IP address 192.168.1.1 and the default IP address in the latest router is also 192.168.1.1. Can someone please suggest how to resolve this? I use an iMAC to set up the connection, and its runs OS X 10.5.8.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

You may want to read about cascading routers as posted by gv.
Additionally, you can also refer to the Cisco Knowldege base on how to do so.

Thanks for your reply. My issue is not cascading but setting up basically two different wifi networks at home using different service providers. Any thoughts on resolving this?

So each one router has a different provider ? It should be ok. If the 2 routers will not be physically connected to each other then it will not cause any type of conflict. If you plan to create 2 networks that will be ok since they have diifferent internet service providers. Just make sure that you create different network names so that you will be able to identify which router is which.

Thanks zee29. Yes, each router has a different service provider. However, for some reason, the Linksys E1200 router is not setting up. This service provider uses PPPoE. Any suggestions most appreciated.

Hi, what is the ip address that you get if you connect your computer to the modem. Do you see a PPPoE dialler installed on your computer.
