Can I have two routers with the same line? My problem is I share the internet with my neighbor. The router is in my house and he just wired a line from my house to his house. He has 3 computers, actually 2 desktop 1 notebook. He wants to use wireless internet for his notebook and he bought a wireless router. We plug the line from my house to his new router, but nothing works. Can same one tell me where the problem is?

For starters plug the cable from the modem in your house into the WAN port on your router.
In his house you plug the cat5 cable from your house into the LAN port on his router.
I don't use dhcp on my routers so not sure there.

NO, the wired connection pluged into the wireless router will not work.
Thanks for your suggestion, but it doesn't work too.
Now I think we are going to buy a switch and a wireless access point. Can anyone recommend us what brand is good and what need to be considered when shop for a wireless access point?

You can use the wireless router he bought as an access point. Just disable all of the sharing options (NAT, DHCP, any firewall, etc.) and it reverts to an access point.
This has been discussed in several other threads if you look back a bit... I use this same setup as do several others on the board & it works fine.

yeah. i got the same help from a thread on here.
with the original configuration that you had....
1) get a CROSSOVER CABLE.
2) get the wireless router and disable what Jeffbx said:NAT, DHCP, any firewall, etc.
3) plug the crossover cable from your original router (one of the numbered ports), to your wireless router (to the numbered ports, NOT the WAN port
