I have a question about router configuration that I haven't really found an answer to.
What I have:
SSID: House A: A ZyXEL DSL-modem (660 Prestige) with built-in WLAN and DHCP-Server. IP: 192.168.1.1 SSID: House B: A Asus RT-something router, which I've set the IP to 192.168.1.2. No DHCP.
What I want:
Two SSID:s, House A, and House B. But on the same network. House A has the WAN-connection.
Configuration: I haven't managed it to work yet, but this is how I've planned to do it so far:
The ZyXEL set to 192.168.1.1 as mentioned, and the ASUS to 192.168.1.2. Disable the DHCP-server on the ASUS, and connect them to eachother via LAN 1 on both devices. The ZyXELs' DHCP Pool already starts at 192.168.1.10. Subnet mask 255.255.255.0 on both.
Is this a correct configuration to do what I want? Will the ZyXEL assign IP's to both routers clients, and will the clients in both houses work on the same network? And can I access both routers, on both networks, using their IP-addresses?
Also, if this is bad practice, please let me know why. I really want to use different credentials and SSIDs if possible.
If I for some reason want to separate the networks in the future, is it enough to just set different Subnet Masks, or should I enable DHCP on the House B router? WAN is still only available from house A.
