I have Verizon FIOS and I'd like to have a router on each side of the apartment attached to the coaxial cable so that I can have a solid signal throughout. I have the routers configured so that one is primary and handling DHCP and the other is a bridge. Both routers have the same wireless network configuration aside from the channel.
The issue I'm having is that the secondary router is not getting a signal from the coaxial cable. I'm told it's because the WAN is only recognizing the ip of my primary router.
So how do I go about spoofing the ip of my secondary router to make it look like my primary router so I can get it to pick up the internet signal from the coaxial cable?
Edit: My router setup is as follows:
Primary Router Channel: 11 Static IP: 192.168.1.1 DHCP: on Available IP Range for DHCP: 192.168.1.4 - ... Secondary Router Same network name and password as primary Channel: 6 Static IP: 192.168.1.3 DHCP: off
The idea being the secondary router would be an extension of the original. I would like to do this via the coaxial cable so that I don't have to run an ethernet cable through my apartment.
