Two routers, separate SSIDs

Message 1 of 3
(256 Views)

Hi,

 

I just upgraded to the new (G3100) router and it's working great.

 

I'd like to move the old router (G1100) upstairs with a separate SSID.

 

Can this be done?

 

If so how do I connect the old router?

 

-Cat6 to the new Fios router?

-Cat6 back to the Fios modem?

 

Settings to change on the old router?

Thanks!

I also have a G3100 extender.

 

I assume I cannot create a separate network/SSID with that? Even if connect it to the G3200 with a cable?

You need to connect from lan port of G1100 to Lan port of G3100.

Google how to make the G1100 into an access point.
