Problem with two routers

  1. Hello!

    From my ISP i have been provided with a zyxel prestige 642R router. It seems
    there's some preset configuration set in the router, so you log onto it,
    select a profile and input your username and password and you're done. It is
    set to obtain an IP automatically. This router is connected to the internet.

    Between that and my computer i have a wireless linksys router, which is set
    to static IP and uses the set IP of the zyxel router.

    When looking up pages it takes 2-3 seconds before it actually finds the page
    and starts loading it. If i have a download running, it looks up the page
    instantly - it's like the data is already flowing, and it just rides the
    wave. :) I have tried it with several browsers with the same result.

    Anyone have an idea what might be wrong, or can come up with something i can
    try? Oh, i know i can keep my connection alive by for example pinging a
    given host, but i'm more looking for an answer to the problem, not a way to
    sidestep it. :)
