I am trying to figure out a simple way to set up my network in my place. I already have cable modem setup with router and few access points in my place but i am adding a T2 line to my work office for trading. I would like to be able to access both networks at home. I was hoping to maybe set up two different SSID's on my access point so i can have wireless connections to both. Do i need another router or can i use my exisiting router?

My main goal is to use the internet and access to my office T2 line easily. I thought about adding another set up access points and router but is that neccessary?

Great site guys. Thanks

Different routers will be needed. (Unless you have some type of commercial grade router that can support it.)

I assume this is a home office?

Would a dual WAN Router work if i stick with the same Access Points?

I believe dual WAN routers will keep it on the same network, with just switching to the other if the primary connection goes down. To have 2 completely different networks you would most likely need 2 different routers, unless as I said its some commercial router out there (talking commercial grade with $1,000+) that could run 2 networks off of one.

The cheapest (and easiest) way out would be to just buy 2 routers.
