I've successfully had a 2nd router connected via ethernet for over a year and today it won't let me connect to the internet. It advises there is a conflict.
I've factory reset the second router. How do I get it setup as a 2nd router again? . I'm assuming I need to change the IP address from 192.168.1.1 so it doesn't conflict. I can't remember how I did it the last time, any help would be appreciated?

If you are keeping everything on the same subnet, then what @martswain has said is perfect. The conflict probably came about because you had possibly not disabled the DHCP server in the second router and the same IP address was handed out to two different devices.

Log in to the main router at 192.168.1.1
Check the main router DHCP range is set to 192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.255
Connect to the second router WITHOUT it connected to the main router and log in to the settings pages.
Set the IP address of the second router to 192.168.1.2
Disable DHCP on the second router.
SAVE THE CHANGES.
Connect both devices via LAN ports on both.
You may need to set WiFi channels on both so they are different.
If I've got it wrong I am sure @KeithFrench will put us right !
