So this is my issue:
Present set up is one normal service provided SFR (France) internet router.
I have purchased an ASUS rt-n66u router
I have flashed with tomato
I have added open vpn and have it working through hidemyass (in essence, as it is not connected to anything apart from the wireless connection on the computer it is connected to.
I want to:
Connect this new router to the existing router and have 2 wireless connection to choose from. The original one that is on a french ip and the new ASUS router which will work on a UK ip address (through the openvpn) so I can connect my wifi satellite box, smart tv and any computer that I want to a any time.
I don't know how to
a. connect the 2 routers (I guess a wire, but the correct technical way is beyond me)
b. set up the routers so they work together allowing me to choose whichever router I want.
Some extras info:
I have changed the new routers static ip to 192.168.1.2
The other normal router is - 192.168.1.1
They also have set the different ip addresses that they can use - So there will be no conflict there…
I am really confused as how to go forward from here and any help would be much appreciated. I am sure it is easy and someone out there will have the easy answer.
I really appreciate your help..
