Re: Asus RT-N16 as secondary router, need DHCP on both routers
I think your current setup (in the diagram) is best. Install Tomato on the E1200 and put the ASUS in AP mode. Set up static reservations for the cameras, and port forwarding in the E1200.
1. Would it make any sense to set up Asus to run in N-mode only (as all cameras are N) to max the range/quality on them?
2. Then, would it bother Linksys if it's running mixed or G only and SSID is same on both routers? (so, with same SSID, can one router do N and other mixed or G?)
1 camera is closer to Linksys and will probably connect to it rather than to Asus (if Linksys is running N or mixed)
3. And finally, are there any Tomato-specific options I can use here to my advantage?
