    Dummy ISP to test network setup

    Thanks ColinTaylor. Duh! I really should have though of that myself. It does appear though that if you are working w/ VLANs the router supplying the WAN needs to be VLAN capable. I tried using an old Belkin (10+ years old) as the dummy WAN and did not work but did when I put it at the "end...

    Dummy ISP to test network setup

    I have tried numerous setups and would like to make a fake public IP on a PC so that when I plug the WAN port of a router into it that router will get a WAN IPv4 Address, WAN Gateway (and maybe a WAN domain name). That way I will know that my setup is capable of getting "out". I'm not looking...

    Dummy ISP to test network setup

    I have been having annoying internet issues for several weeks that I think is due to the cable company's modem (Spectrum) but they do not see any problems on their end. Is there a way to setup another PC as a "dummy" ISP that will provide an "external" IP address? My thinking is that if the...

This is what I was attempting to accomplish but when Cable Box B is turned on, Access Point B cannot be seen on the network and nothing else can connect to it wired or wireless. I cannot access...

    Network Destination: 192.168.10.0 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: WAN IP address of Router C (e.g. 192.168.1.???) Interface: LAN This did work to create a separate subnet and computer's can connect to the internet via WIFI and LAN on Router C. Unfortunately the Cable box, connected...

    Create separate subnet with second router

    I have a Fiber optic TV Cable box that is messing up part of my network and I think the solution is to put it on a separate subnet so it can't communicate with my "main" network. I would greatly appreciate some help to accomplish this. I have Router A as DHCP server on subnet 192.168.1.0...
