How do you set up another router to work with the Viasat Wireless Gateway? I have tried setting things up a number of times but the wireless signal never comes through the router that I am trying to configure.

Are you able to connect to the internet through the additional router if you connect to it using an ethernet cable?

See reply to C.C Higgins regarding bridge mode at:

Most use that approach when wanting a more robust 3rd party router. There are ways to get the 3rd party router to work without using bridge mode but that's the easiest way to ensure no conflicts between the two routers.
