Default Re: Need Help Bridging Routers

It is so simple.
First call your ISP and request a second IP address. Static. It should be free or cost no more than 5.00usd a month extra. Don't tell them what you're doing. Sharing like you have is a no no.
From the modem to a 5 port switch.
From each router's WAN port to a port on the switch.
Program your router with the static address. The other with the floating address.

I have set up every hotel network I installed that way and it works just fine. The routers don't affect each other and you can program each one as you like.
