My network is like this:
A Thomson TG508v2 modem/router connects to the internet and connected to it we have:
- Computer 1
- Computer 2
- An EA6500 router
In the EA6500 router we have:
- A TV
- A PS3
and we also use it as the main wifi router for the whole house since it is better positioned and has a better range than the TG508v2
The thing is, Computer 1 has a DLNA server and I wish to use it from my TV which as you can notice is connected in another router.
The first answer will probably be: use your EA6500 in bridge mode, but:
- I lose a lot of the EA6500 features doing that.
- For some strange reason, the internet in the mobile devices (wifi) starts to have some bugs when I do that, The youtube app takes a lot to load videos (like 2 minutes just to start buffering) and my sister always has some strange stuff happening in her iphone/ipad. While using the EA6500 as a router in a different subnet I don't have those problems.
I also wish that everything could work almost as if there was only one subnet (everything could ping everything) but without losing the EA6500 features (plugins HDs to it, better network controls than over the TG580v2, etc....).
The TG580v2 has crappy/no way to configure routes, and the EA6500 has nat enabled.
Connecting the computers to the EA6500 will be almost impossible
