In the image below is how picture I would like to set up my home with the equipment I already have. As to if it is possible I do not know. But also in doing this I would like to not effect the main routers performance. A few other things that might cause a problem(or not IDK?) The Main router is DHCP but the cameras all have Static addresses and the NVR also has a static address. But I would like the Netgear router to link with the main router as so to be able to access the cameras over the internet. Right now the Netgear router is a stand alone network with its only connection being the cameras and NVR. So is it possible to link the 2 routers wireless or is only way thru Ethernet and most importantly HOW??

You want a wired connection between the routers for better throughput

 

here is how you want to do it

since the cameras are static no worries about dhcp just make sure those ips are not in the dhcp scope

OK so the cameras are dot 100,101,102,103 wireless and the NVR is dot 102wired and I don't what router 2's address will be, but I need to make sure all these are out of router 1's scope?

If one of the cameras are .102 and the NVR is .102 your going to have an IP conflict. You need to put the WNDR3800 in AP mode Set the IP address static at .99 and connect it to the Asus router with an Ethernet cable. This will disable the DHCP, Router functions and extend the wireless with Netgear router.

 

Ip Scheme:

 

Asus router static IP 192.168.1.1

Asus Router DHCP scope 192.168.1.2-192.168.1.98

Default gateway 192.168.1.1

Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0

 

Netgear Static IP 192.168.1.99

Default Gateway 192.168.1.1

Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0

DNS 192.168.1.1

 

Camera 1 192.168.1.100

Camera 2 192.168.1.101

Camera 3 192.168.1.102

Camera 4 192.168.1.103

NVR 192.168.1.104

Gateway 192.168.1.1

Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0

DNS 192.168.1.1

OK, this is where I get confused. So the ASUS is in a static mode or just a static address for it? If it is in a static mode then my PC's TV,s Laptops and tablets all have to be assigned static address's? Or is it still working as a DHCP server? And will the cameras being within the scope of the ASUS DHCP address's cause a conflict? This is what hurts me is I know enough to be dangerous(get myself into a jam) but not enough to be use full...lol

As a auto mechanic I always tell people when they mess up their car, just because you own a crescent wrench does not make you a mechanic. Well here I stand crescent wrench in hand...lol

The asus router will pick its own IP the default is 192.168.1.1 The camera's are not in the dhcp scope. The dhcp scope stops at 192.168.1.98 (you need to set it to stop at .98). The laptops, TV's, tablets, or whatever doesn't have a static IP will get an IP from the Asus router.

So the scope of the Asus Router DHCP scope 192.168.1.2-192.168.1.98

But the cameras being 192.168.100-104 will be ok? OH wait it just hit me the address's of cameras is dot one hundred not dot 1 was thinking in math drop the zero's after a decimal. See dam crescent wrench getting me in trouble. OK think I got it thanks will try this in the morning.

 

So should look like thisAttached File  cameras.png   27.2KB   0 downloads
