Re: Adding a 2nd router

Sure, it can be done that way, but it isn't best practice and adds an additional layer of NAT for any device connected to the second access point.

Agreed. You want a single DHCP device on the network. You also make device to device communication within the LAN needlessly complicated.

Set your wireless router to bridge/access point mode and attach it to a LAN port of your existing router.

I got the 2nd router up and working, but I still need to check for bridge mode and DHCP server settings.

What is the best way to check to see if I qualify for the 32/5 profile and if I do qualify, the best route to request it?
