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?
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.
