Hello,

I need some help ASAP please....

Q-Need the EXACT steps to take in order to access a 2nd Netgear router on hm network

Y-Setting up a subnet due to the EXTREME amount of havoc that is created for other devices trying to use the same connection

Plan-use switch & 2nd Netgear router to isolate the gaming/heaving bandwidth users on own subnet so all home network traffic not going through same Netgear router

Here's the tech info for you...

None of that is going to work unless the "modem" is actually a modem/router combo or the "switch" is actually a router (unless, of course, you are paying for multiple public IP addresses).

You want to have two wireless networks to alleviate some of the wireless congestion?

I have 1 Internet connection via TWC...here's the route--

TWC Arris cable modem(already n bridge mode cuz model type--LAN DHCP turned off)

TWC modem goes n2 netgear switch

Switch connects via Ethernet throughout house (hybrid sys-cat5 ran n wireless access)

Upstairs Ethernet cable (Frm switch) goes n2 netgear1 WAN port

WAN's on bk of ng1 connect out to devices including 1 that goes bk dwn to switch (due to TWC sys)

I know wat need to set ng2 to but can't fig out how to connect it temporarily so can change its ip cuz ng defaults same for both my routers
