Ok I have 2 routers and one modem. (I also have a switch handy) I would like to connect both routers to the modem. The only catch is I don't want both networks down if one router stops working or is having maintenance on it.
my current set up is like this: 1 modem, 2 routers, 2 different networks
But if router 1 goes offline or down nothing on router 2 will get internet. I only have access to router 2's settings and can't see what is going on with router 1 when it stops working. My tech level is low in networking but mid-high on troubleshooting.
my switch is a Linksys SE2500, while router one is an Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station, and router two is Linksys EA4500
If anyone can provide me a link or a method of making 2 routers use the same IP address from one internet connection
