My cable provider provided us with a gateway modem that has it's own built in router. I need to set up two local networks, one for guest and one for admins.
The reason is because I have a Western Digital MyCloud EX2 that is connected via ethernet and I don't want my guests to access the hard drive, only the admins.
This is my current setup:
Coaxial Cable (Internet) > Cisco Gateway > TP-LINK TL-WR841N Router > MyCloud Hard Drive.
Cisco Gateway is used as Guest network, TP-LINK is used as admin network
This setup works to prevent my guests access to the drive, however, my TP-LINK router connection is constantly dropping and resetting, the CISCO is okay. How do I fix this disconnecting issue? I've tried a Belkin router and same disconnecting issues. I've spoke to my cable provider and they said there's no other setup I can have to restrict guests from using my hard drive since it's a wired connection to the local network.
