First let me state that I am a rookie when it comes to networking, and am certainly willing to learn. I tried finding answers via searching.. but I'm running into some problems.
What I am trying to accomplish is to use two routers with two different SSIDs at different ghz:
- Router A: Ubee (Time warner cable) modem with a built in wireless router which supports 5 ghz. (Private IP range 192.168.0.3 through 192.168.0.254)
- Router B: Asus RT-N16 with Tomato USB to be run at 2.4 ghz.
What I would like to do is have the Router B (RT-N16) connect to the Router A (Ubee) via cat 5E cable and have 1 network. This is what I have done:
- Connect CAT 5e from router A (Ubee) Lan port 1 to the WAN port of the router B (RT-N16)
- A: Turn on the DHCP Server on router A (Ubee), and the router is set to NAT.
- B: Turn off the DHCP server on router B (RT-N16)
- B: On the "WAN / Internet" type setting on the tomato based router B (RT-N16) is set to DHCP.
- B: The wireless mode on router B is set to "Access Point".
So to summarize, what I'm trying to accomplish is to be able to connect a device to router B (RT-N16) either wirelessly or wired and then be part of the router A network (192.168.0.3 through 192.168.0.254). In addition, I would like that router A and B have different SSIDs for the wireless.
What I have done however doesn't work as expected. For instance, if I connect a device to the router B, it doesn't get an IP assigned (just doesn't work :S).
Any idea what I'm doing incorrectly? Any help would be appreciated.
