    RT-AX86U wireless isolation

    Makes sense, and simple. Thanks!

    RT-AX86U wireless isolation

    This is what I'd like to do, unless it involves jumping through hoops that aren't practical for the layman.

    RT-AX86U wireless isolation

    No need, thanks. I thought someone might know. It's not a difficulty at all. I'm battening down the hatches of aspects of the network I don't really need or use.

    RT-AX86U wireless isolation

    We meet again, Tech9. :) The 'Set AP isolated' tooltip is a bit vague in that it mentions only 'wireless clients or devices'. Whenever I need to transfer files to or from my phones/tablets, I connect using USB.

    RT-AX86U wireless isolation

    Are the normal (not guest) wireless networks isolated from the wired network? With guest network, I have the option to turn off 'intranet access', but there's no such option in the normal wireless networks. I don't need any of my wireless devices to access my wired clients and would like to use...

    Setting up multiple IPs

    Thanks for your concise and easy to understand explanations. As to the bolded, that's me. :)

    Setting up multiple IPs

    Thanks for taking the time to make the diagram, and your explanation of what it does is very helpful too. That's actually pretty close to what I had set up before, using subnets, although with the recent 'purge', I eliminated a few of the 'nodes' and removed the WRTs out of service. Also, my...

    Setting up multiple IPs

    Wouldn't that be covered when (if) I finally get educated on setting up netgate/pfsense? Also, I plan on dropping two of the static IPs. If pfsense comes into play, I can always drop the other 'additional' static, leaving one. I thought that IP cams were easily hacked...I assumed that hacking...

    Setting up multiple IPs

    I mentioned that I have four static IPs on my account. Frankly, I thought it would be easier to use static IPs to isolate than the numerous subnets I was using before. Also, I now know that the subnets weren't truly isolated. Given my comments above, I think I can do what I want with only 2...

    Setting up multiple IPs

    Thanks for the help. Since I last posted, I've come to the conclusion that the limitation is on the IP side. To illustrate (and this also gives an idea of what I want to isolate): R(outer)1: main PC, used for customer database, invoicing and any other business activities with the exception of...

    Setting up multiple IPs

    You may be right. What problems do you believe could occur? I just called Cox and asked if my issues could be due to a tech or Cox limitation of the multiple IP addresses, but she refused to answer other than it's an IT problem.

    Setting up multiple IPs

    The two routers that work have wireless enabled (I'll call them R1 & R2) and are within feet of each other. Only one router (R3 - not working) sits in the same spot, but wireless isn't enabled for that one. The 4th router (R4) is 60' away. The wireless hasn't been an issue in the past with the...

    Setting up multiple IPs

    To separate NWs. I know...I can use VLANs, but I'm using static IPs. Additional info: For the nodes not working, if I plug into one of the working NW's routers, I get internet. One of the working routers is the same router I'm using on the non-working nodes, and are configured the same (except...

    Setting up multiple IPs

    I have 4 static IPs on my cox account. I've set it up thusly: Modem --> 5 port netgear unmanaged ethernet switch --> then off to the various routers for each static IP. The problem is that I can only get internet to two of the "nodes". All cables ring out fine (and were working before I set...

    Router Recs for optimal reliability, security and speed

    @Tech9 Point taken, and is what I've decided to do for the present. Thanks to all for the help. I'd still like to look into pfsense when I get time to educate myself on how to configure/deploy it.
