This is an extension of question ID28240278. I want to make absolutely sure I have the correct procedure.
Modem and Netgear (router 1) are in the main house. Linksys (router 2) is in a cottage. An ethernet cord goes from the Netgear to the Linksys.
Here is the network topology:
Modem -> Netgear (Router 1)
Netgear (Router 1) has the following connected via ethernet ports:
Linksys (Router 2)
Linksys (Router 2) has:
Ethernet connected Printer.
I am trying to access the Synology NAS via the Win7 computer.
I want to make sure which router I’m suppose to disable DHCP on.
My understanding is that I disable DHCP on the Linksys (router 2). Is this correct? I also assign an IP address to the Linksys that’s within the address range of devices defined in the Netgear. Then I take the ethernet cable from the WAN or Internet port on the Linksys and switch that to any of its four LAN ports. I should then be able to access the Internet from the Win 7 computer, access the printer, and still get WIFI in the cottage.
Is this correct?
