I have a Cisco DPC3829 gateway and a TP-Link TL-WR841N router connected to the gateway in order to separate the router network and use the gateway as a guest network. This way, I can create a homegroup within the router and nobody connected to the guest can access the homegroup.
However, those connected to the router are constantly experiencing drops in connection, even when connected via Ethernet. My computer states:
The DNS Server is not responding.
I’ve tried almost every configuration possible but no matter what, the router will randomly drop Internet connection, even with a different router. I tried pre-assigning the router a DHCP IP Address.
Setting up a guest network in the gateway is not an option because the guest will have access to all devices connected to it, which is why I have a second router.
What can I do to fix this?
