    Wireless router into network

    Ok so i have my cable line comin the house to my cable modem. Modem to wan port of router. Netgear nighthawk x4s. Line goes into my switch.

    This totally works. Netgear router parental controls are horrible.

    My Asus wifi router allows you to deny devices to internet on a granular schedule. I plugged wireless router port into my switch and i can connect to wifi and browse the web. Cant get block to work.

    Are you supposed to use the wan port of router into switch making it a totally seperated network?

    Im thinkin so and i cant set that for a few hrs. Run kids to sports...

    Thoughts? Hope you can follow whats in my head...

    The WAN port connects to the service provider. To achieve separation ===> VLANS you need a managed switch not a plug n play switch.

        ok got it working and exactly how I thought it would..

        Asus -
        • so Asus router I want the kids on wan port to my switch (could of done to netgear router so may do that another day).
        • Configure DHCP on router for range to give out
        • Configure SSID's and pwds
        • Gateway is WAN port IP


        Really that was it out of the norm. Other network didn't touch anything..

              Sounds good.
              You may have issues if the kids need to use a printer or other resources on the main LAN. To allow the path back, add a route on the Netgear. For example, if the main LAN is 192.168.1.0 and the kids computers are on 192.168.2.0, on the Netgear add route with destination 192.168.2.0 and gateway 192.168.1.xxx, where xxx is the [static or fixed] IP assigned to the ASUS' WAN port.
