how to set up my home network
Posted on 2014-09-15
I am absolute amateur at networking and need to set up my home network. My desired setup is as follows but I need to know if it's possible:
1. I have a Belkin VOIP modem that I would like to set up in the communications hub.
2 I would like to connect other Ethernet ports throughout the home to this point.
2. I have a Netgear D6200 wireless modem that I would like to set up in my lounge area so it is close to where all the wireless devices are but 3 I only have one Ethernet point in this area and I would also like to run my DVR, which has Ethernet connectivity from the same outlet and since this is a better unit I would prefer it to be the one to issue IP addresses throughout the network
3 I would like to have all the units connect to the same network
It this possible? I need to understand if it is possible to have the Netgear modem handle IP address allocation even though it is effectively at the end of an Ethernet cable connected to the Belkin modem
I hope I have explained this clearly enough.
