I've read many posts on here and dslreport but still confused on which connection to make. I'm looking into getting the TP Link C4000 (tri-band) and want to know which route to go. I want to keep it simple so connecting it after the quantum gateway seems to be the recommended route for this. I've read the installation guides on verizon and router manufacturer and they all say to use the wan. I've read the lan to lan guide on dslreport and know about turning off dhcp on the secondary and making changes to the primary router ip distribution so the secondary router ip is different so i can log into it. Anyway any advice is much appreciated. I have gigabit service, cat 6 from ont for data, and coax from ont for tv. I have tv and internet service. I heard about double NAT but still not sure what that means.
Solved! Go to Solution.
you take the new router and put it in access point mode. On Netgear and others it a simple log into the router and flick a radio button to place in AP Mode
you then hen take an ethernet cable and plug one end into the verizons LAN port and the other end into the personal routers WAN port.
you then access the Verizon router and turn off their crappy WiFi and make sure your new routers WiFi is on. Never overlap WiFi
you now can use the LAN ports on both routers for your connection pleasure.
really very easy to do.
Google your router and access point.
The routers I have seen a are quite simple.
First, disable dhcp function on your router.
And then connect from LAN of Verizon router to LAN on your router.
This will ensure that all devices are one the same subnet as everyone else.
