      Question Two Routers Separating into Two Networks

      Hi All,

      This is my first post. I have a query in regards to two Sky f@st2504n routers I have. I am currently using only one of the routers for my wireless network. I would like to use the other router for separating the network into two networks (or subnet) for a test lab. I am unsure of how to do this on these routers. I am also unsure if it is possible to do this on these type of routers.

      Can someone please help me with this query?

      Many Thanks,

      DaveC2003

      Just set up the other router with a gateway and dhcp range in a different subnet, i.e. 192.168.1.0

      If you want to be able to route between the two networks you'd need to set up RIP or a static route. These options aren't in the Sky GUI - they might be in a hidden menu perhaps, I'm not sure though.

      You might be able to setup the second router if you flash it with custom firmware but you'd probably end up double natting due to the inflexibility of the sky router.

      If you're at the stage were you're talking about building Lab networks then you probably want something a bit more powerful than your average home router, are you on FTTC or ADSL?

      I like RouterOS and EdgeOS but neither platform has ADSL support so would require a seperate DSL modem, both also have a fairly steep learning curve.

      RouterOS has more features, EdgeOS seems more stable but needs a lot of the config to be done in the CLI
