    I have a Dsl router(provided by my isp) and a wireless router(Tp-link).my dsl router has the ip 192.168.1.1 and wireless has 192.168.2.1 .I have a PC connected directly to isp router, my brother has a laptop connected to wireless router.He can access both routers but i can only access the main router.
    Is there any way i can access both the routers?:)

    Hi WarkaDang, and welcome to TSG,

    Do you mean you wish to access the administration pages on both routers? Is so ...

    Assuming your computer is using a wired connection to the DSL router and the Wireless router includes LAN ports, the simplest solution would be to plug your computer into one of the LAN ports of the wireless router.

    Otherwise, you would need to see if the wireless router supports accessing the admin pages through the WAN port.
    WARNING NOTE: Configuring the router to enable WAN access to the administration pages may make it vulnerable to attacks from hackers on the Internet.

    You're welcome.

    FWiW, If you have a desktop PC, you could consider adding a wireless card or wireless USB dongle to it and access the router wirelessly just as your brother does.
