    Thank you for your thoughtful replies. I think I will get the edge switch and set up VLANs. Security through obscurity may be best .

    How to occasionally communicate between two different LANs

    2 separate networks due to two different businesses that share space. A bunch of artists and a bunch of makers. They each pay a small amount to their own operating funds to maintain things like rent, internet etc. They want to stay separate. There is no ‘IT’ department. And there is not likely...

    Simple multiple WAN options for home use

    you could get a dual wan router like this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007B60SCG/?tag=snbforums-20 and add a switch and a WAP. or you could get a load balancing router https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HODK3N0/?tag=snbforums-20

    help me understand how these two configurations will work

    in this case, pc 1 should not be able to see pc2 because pc1 can only search on 192.168.1.0 due to its netmask of 255.255.255.0. But what if the netmask is changed to 255.255.0.0? like so in this case pc1 should also be able to see both routers (btw, dhcp is turned off everywhere) Will pc1...
