Hello,
at the begin, I'm totally newbie in configuring networks...
I have network like this: https://ibb.co/jW3Pbk
From devices connected to switch I have an Internet and everything is fine. Now I connected a router's wan port to this switch and it got a IP address from dhcp (so it have the Internet and access to other devices in this network). But devices connected to the R2 lan ports can ping only each other but without access to the Internet and devices connected to switch. My question is what should I do to get the Internet and access to devices connected to the switch? Please help me...

The way we have it setup at my place is this;

We have 5 routers in our house..

Main router: 192.168.1.1

Second: 192.168.1.2 and so on...

 

I connected all my routers via the LAN port as opposed to the WAN port. I then changed it so all routers EXCEPT for the main router have DHCP DISABLED.

These will the basically act as AP's or small little switches.. Might be worth trying?

 

It depends what setup you are trying to make? How do you want it all setup?

Hmm, good idea. The main reason to connect this router (with sim slot) to network it was that he will be send sms but now it working without sim, so switch probably will be enough. I'll try, thanks for advice :)

Just ensure that the second router is not in the DHCP range! set the dhcp to perhaps 192.168.1.10 or whatever! and have the router to .2?

I don't have much experience with routers with sims so I'm not 100% this will work as intended!

Hi Thomas,

 

May I know why you need to connect another router? To connect to other PC on your network you need to disable the DHCP of your second router.
