I have 2 routers each connected to a modem on my office, which is then connected to the internet. My router model is TP-Link AC750 Wireless Dual Band (new one) while the other router is a Netgear router. The problem is I cannot see other computers connected to the internet through my router, when i type in "net view" i can only see my computer listed.


As it is, I can access the login page of my router and modem via these IP addresses: - My Router - My Modem


The other net gear router by default uses or I'm not sure which IP address it is currently set to, or if it has been set to 


I've been trying to change the IP address of my router so that i can see all the other computers on my network or i must be doing something wrong. I've tried disabling DHCP on my router and changing my router IP to some IP address like but however, my router gives me the error that the WAN IP cannot be in the same subnet as the LAN IP. I'm also not sure which IP address is in use. 


So how should I set it up?

Ah Thanks i figured it out now what i was doing wrong.


I transferred the cable connected from my modem to router from the WAN (labeled internet port) to LAN Port 1 of my router, then the other ethernet cable from my router to PC. My WAN settings are now at and Lan IP address at, in the same subnet as my modem. Now i can both access the internet and view other network PCs :D


*Recent Edit:

It appears that I'm suddenly disconnecting from the internet (but still able to connect to my LAN network via shared folders). Its only my pc connected to the router that is experiencing this, all other computers can connect fine to the internet. I do not know what is causing it and will continue to monitor the situation. Had to power cycle the router, any ideas?
