Hi

I have a D-Link DSL-502T and a D-Link DSL-G604T.
One is a single port router and the other is a 4 port wireless router.

Is it possible for me to connect these so that both routers can go on the internet?

The single port router has a adsl input, a phone input and a usb input.

Thanks

I'm pretty sure you can.
Lets make the 604T the main one.
So on the 502T, disable DHCP and disable NAT. Connect it via ethernet from one port to another on the 604T.
I'm pretty sure this will just make the 502T act as a switch and the 604T does the rest of the work.

thing is, i have a computer that i want to connect the 502 to and if i use an ethernet cable to attach the 502 to the 604 then does that mean i have to use USB port to connect the 502 to the computer?

what exactly are you trying to achieve?  Are you wanting to try and join two internet connections to get faster internet?  Or are you just trying to get 5 computers to be able to connect to the internet via network cables at once?

if you are trying to combine two internet connections then you're not going to be able to do it with those units - you need special hardware to do that.

if you simply want to connect more computers, then consider grabbing a cheap 4 port hub and connecting it to one of the ports on the wireless 4 port - you could then connect 7 computers at once...

what i want to do is connect 5 computers to the net with the single port router and the 4 port wireless, however i think that is not possible now.
maybe i should just get a hub or maybe a wireless adapter for the other computer.

yep, you'll have to get another hub/switch/4-port router/wireless adaptor to do this. If its just for internet browsing you could probably get away with an old 4 port 10mbps  (or better) hub from trademe.   there are quite a few up for $1 no reserve... so that would be your cheapest option.  if you're wanting to stream video between computers then you might want to get a new switch with GigE ports

thanks for the help, in the end i decided to get a hub.
What a waste of $27 for the 502t router lol.
