Can one daisy chain two linksys routers together?
Hello all! I had a 4 port linksys cable/dsl router/hub that worked great. I then got a lap top and a wireless card so I bought the wireless version and boxed up the old router.
I am now at the point where my needs excedes my ports. Mind you, I am no networking guru, I just know how to get my personal network going.
Can I just plug the old router into the new one (outgoing from wireless ingoing to the WAN port on the old one)? Dare I hope its that simple? Will I need a crossover cable? Will it work at all? I also have a 5 port hub laying around too, but I don't know how to make that work with this as well.
TIA for any advice/help.

Yes you can, provided you configure it as a switch without the Routing.
Here how, Wireless Router as an AP - http://www.ezlan.net/router_AP.html
The above instructions are for a Wireless Router, the principle is the same for a wire only unit.
