    Hi everyone,

    Right now I have 2 routers, wireless (192.168.1.1) one that is connected to internet and a normal wired (192.168.3.1) one connected to local network.

    When I have the wirless connected with the wired one unplugged, I can gain access to the internet.

    The minute I plug in the wired one to access the local network, the wireless one still shows connected but the internet connection is lost ONLY on my PC. Other people connected to the wireless can still connect to the internet no problem.

    I am running on Windows Vista Business 32bit. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Exactly how are the two routers connected, and what is the exact make/model of each router. I'd like to know what port on each router is connected to what in the network. What is the purpose of two routers, since you can do the network with the single router?
