Re: Joining 2 Routers

Well I have been reading up some but have no confidence on doing this without some guidance. Any configuration to the main router has to be done on the middle of the night so I'm hesitant to just experiment until I get it right. So if I just scrap the single unified DHCP server and the WAN failover,...

Re: Joining 2 Routers

You need a smart/managed switch with port bonding to do what you want to do.
I didn't refresh the page before replying earlier so I missed this. Can you expand on this at all or link to a guide?

Re: Joining 2 Routers

You should update that router first. v6.34.4 is very old, and has some vulnerabilities. That is the main router, ( CRS125 ) and I do plan to update it one night after hours but haven't had the chance yet. The Router I'm trying to configure is the CRS109 and it is running the latest version. "Bridge...

Re: Joining 2 Routers

Thanks again Amm0, It sounds so easy but I am still having trouble getting everything working. I reset the router to "No Default Settings" but the Default "Quickset" mode is CAP and I don't think that's right. I tried using Home AP, but it wouldn't let me set a static "Internet" IP so it gets assign...

Re: Joining 2 Routers

Thanks for the reply Amm0, I dug up an old Netgear switch which would be much more appropriate for simple expansion of ports, and found a much better use for the CRS109. I want to use it as a wireless access point to duplicate my wireless and guest wireless networks to a part of the building that ha...

Joining 2 Routers

I currently have a CRS125-24G-1S-2HnD-IN filled to capacity and a CRS109-8G-1S-2HnD-IN that is not being used. It seems a waste but I'd like to use the CRS109 to expand my existing capacity and use it as a dumb switch. I'm guessing I can turn off the wireless as I see no benefit to using it as it wi...

Re: Trouble Forwarding Ports [SOLVED]

Thanks @2frogs, I did quickly look over the data I posted but missed that it posted our public IP. (It is dynamic, but I still missed it) I'm new here and saw the command /hide-sensitive and assumed incorrectly that it hid that data for you. As far as my problem, I did manage to figure out that our ...

Trouble Forwarding Ports [SOLVED]

Hi, I'm trying and failing miserably at forwarding a couple ports on our router here at work. I need to forward 2 ports (8000,2121) to our server and have tried following many tutorials but nothing seems to work. Standard cable modem plugged in to eth1, server is on eth2 which is listed as a master ...
