Best way to set up segregated networks behind Uverse Motorola Residential Gateway?  I think it's an NVG589 RG.


I need 2 segregated networks- 1 for an ethernet LAN and 1 for a wireless network.  I do not want either to be able to see the other.  I tried doing this with a Cisco Linksys e1500 router and could not get it to pull an IP from the Motorola, even after releasing/renewing and power cycling both.  The AT&T tech said Linksys sometimes don't work as well in this regard as Belkin or Netgear, but I'm not sure I'm buying that.  He had no ideas. 


Any ideas to set up these 2 independent networks as inexepnsively as possible.  To go into a little further detail, network A will have 6-8 devices and a couple access points for iPads'; network B will be exclusively for wireless customers like a coffee shop. 


Currently, the site is simply using the Motorola RG with an 8 port Netgear switch and all devices are wired into the switch.


Thanks for any help!

Bulldawg23, you want to setup VLANs.http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/VLAN_Support] is a good starting point. Once you get your head wrapped around it VLANs are a breeze.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
