I have 2 routers in the same LAN and everything is working fine, I can file share and print for any PC. What I do want to know is if my second router is broadcasting wireless signals or not as I really can't tell. And if it isn't, how can I enable the feature?

Oh and one more question, how can I port forward when I have 2 routers. Do I port forward on the main router or port forward on both of the routers?

Thanks!

Login to the second router, see what the SSID is (or set it to a unique name), make sure the wireless mode and the SSID broadcast are enabled, and use a computer with a wireless adapter to see if you can detect the signal.

If they are in the same LAN, per your first sentence above, then only one is being used as a router (you have the other configured as ethernet switch and maybe wireless access point), and that is the one on which port forwarding is done.

If the routers are cascaded (LAN port of first connected to WAN port of second) then port forwarding must be done on both.
