    A router doesn't need activation. You connect it to your modem, power it on, install the drivers, and you're pretty much done. You shouldn't have to contact your ISP.

    Ibdc is right, all your router does is send your modem's signal throughout the house.

    If your router doesn't work then your going to have to buy a new one it's that simple.

    Also again, you do not have to contact your ISP.

    If your not going to take my advice then stop asking for it.

    Plus your question makes no sense. Why connect 2 routers when you only need 1 working one?

    Look just face the fact that your going to have to buy a new router. Something inside it must have fried. I've had my router give out on me before as well. One night there was a storm and I had too many electronics on and BOOM, no more router.

    S*** happens, accept it.

    b-rad, know what you're talking about... router-router support is actually a rather tricky process. I know it may seem like a really simple concept, but it's not. Such as when I attempted to wire the warehouse with 2 routers, there's going to be conflict with them. Mainly because both routers want to setup a network on the 192.168.1.* range, and the one running off the first is going to run into errors when it's assigned an ip address in that same range. I also had errors with one that used a different ip range, but same concept... network incompatibility errors.

    albert, mind giving me the model number for both routers? I saw that you have a WCG200, but I need the model # for your other one as well.

    Haxalot, I do know what I'm talking about.

    If you read, he only has 1 router and he only needs one router. I already said it's possible to connect two. His current router doesn't work so there's no point in connecting anything until he gets another one.
