I have a few routers lying around and had plans for a new home network. I currently have the NVG589 hooked up for my Uverse wifi. I have 3 nvg510 routers and a netgear n150 wireless router wnr1000 v2h2. I would like to have a home network and a guest network, and I need my signal to reach further. I'm open to any ideas including moding or hacking. My office and personal computers need a 'priority' over the other devices, thus the 'home network.' All guests I have I would like to have through the 'guest network.' I've read about cascading routers and IP passthrough, but dont seem to understand all of it. Anyone care to chime in?  :bananas:

I'd recommend you start by reading Multi-NAT Router Networks.  For extending the wireless using a router, also known as using a router for a wireless access point, you basically connect the router with a cable and turn off DHCP on the router.

 

I don't do traffic prioritization, so I can't help you there.  Generally as long as you don't have someone on the network doing peer to peer downloading or a lot of streaming this isn't an issue.

Unfortunately I don't have a cable long enough to connect the routers. I was hoping to do it wirelessly.. I do have some vap2500 access points, could I use those? And yes I need to separate the networks mainly because my roommate streams Netflix all the time :/ also many guests enjoy streaming YouTube videos and music. Network priority is pretty important, or at least making it so I don't notice any difference with my computers when I'm streaming or playing games online.

My only suggestion to you is to look into dd-wrt and or post your question in the networking section of this forum.  Sorry I cannot be of much help when it comes to networking.  I know my DLink gaming router is capable of QoS (quality of service) and packet prioritization but I do not use that function.
