Re: Adding a 2nd router

said by Renthal1 :

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?
