Re: Dual router set up problem
I use 2 routers, a Netgear plugged into the SACM and a DLink connected via Cat5. Both have the same SSID but different channels. The Dlink is configured as an access point which turns off the firewall, DHCP and the like.
SACM -> WAN port [NETGEAR] LAN port -> WAN port [DLink] LAN port -> PC
Laptops then connect to strongest signal at startup but downside of this setup is they don't change when they move unless the loose the original connection.
The Netgear provides the DHCP service whether connected directly or via DLink and I use the reserve address function to give the DLink an IP outside normal DHCP range.
