Using a Router as an extension to the Wireless network.
Posted on 2014-02-08
I have been trying to use a Netgear N300 ADSL Router to provide additional
Fixed Network Connection
Additional WIFI coverage
to my home network.
I have physically connected the Netgear router to the other router with a network cable.
I configured the netgear to
fixed IP address in the samse subnet as at the main router.
disable DHCP on the Netgear router
ensure the main router does not have the IP address in it SHCP subnet range.
I am a little perplexed as the two routers do not seem to see each other.
I can disconnect the ethernet cable from the netgear router that connects to the other router and the cable is OK.
When I connect to the netgear I cannot ping the other router or access the internet.
When I connect to the other router I can connect to the internet but cannot ping the Netgear router.
