    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

    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
