Network config question
see picture at home.satx.rr.com/bbeaullieus
my problem is that only the computers behind the same router are able to be on the same network. My question is how do I get it to where each computer is able to be in the same network?

This Might Help
Tom's Hardware did an article on this awhile back. Check it out

What would you like to accomplish? I can help you if you give me specifics.
To answer your question, no, a router logically sperates networks. Each arm on any router has to be configured for a differnt subnet.
I saw your diagram, tell me what youwant to accomplish and I think I can help you..
Also, are your linux and win98se PCs going to a hub or switch or are they as you drew them to be, each going to a separate interface on router

I don't understand what the second router is there for...... unless it's just for you to experiment at home. My recomendtion would be to just go with the standard router on a stick configuration.
I hate this place, nothing works here, I\'ve been here for 7 years, the medication does\'nt work...

You need to connect the two routers with a crossover cable.
More advice from Google

you could also just replace router2 with a switch or hub

Thanks everyone, especially Eversor. That site was exactly what I wanted.

Couple of options you have to achieve what you want:
1 Set router 2 up so that it doesn't do address translation. Make router 2 work as a hub/switch only.
2 remove router 2 and plug everything into router 1
It all depends on what your aim is. I dont understand why you would want to put router 2 where it is. It adds additional costs to your network without adding benefits that I can think of, given that you want all the computers to be on the same segment.
If you don't have enough ports for all the systems to connect to then a hub/ switch would be a cheper alternative. If you want to secure the network on router 1 then allowing them to be on the same network defeats that purpose if you dont add any other protection in.
