That's what I have. Both routers have DHCP on right now. I do not want DHCP on the Router 1 because I assign the addresses myself. Router 2 I want DHCP to run because all guests connect to it. Router 1 currently runs wireless and every device connected gets an address from me. Router 2 has a static IP from Router 1 and should be handling all DHCP requests from user connecting to it.
I'm in China and our new DSL broadband is a super cut-rate Huawei box that takes an optical input and has 4 LAN ports. You can set the box's 192.168.X.1, and then it expects the four LAN inputs to be static manually assigned IPs on the same range. In order to sign on you must open a PPPoE connection on a terminal.
My routers my second and third router are connected to the main via Static IPs outside the main router's DHCP range. Routers 2 and 3 have DHCP disabled (so the main router handles all DHCP). All 3 routers are on separate wifi channels. But my main router/modem keeps crashing. Even when it is working, there still is some traffic jams on the network.
I have a main wireless router which is provided by my broadband company. It had no problem but as the wireless could not cover the whole house I added two new routers which are connected by cable to the first one.
My DHCP starts from 192.168.0.4. So .1 is the main router and .2, .3 are the other routers.
