Thanks for the help and info!


If it were me, I would use the wired router as the gateway router, disable DHCP on the wireless router making it a wire/wireless AP switch still using the MAC and whatever else wireless security the can be enabled as it being a wire/WAP switch and plug it into that wire router. The wire computer seems to have better security and FW features than the wireless has like stopping *outbound*.

You can apply the information in the link to your Netgear equipment as the principles of connecting two routers together are the same no matter if they are two wired, two wireless or wire and wireless routes or brand names.

People run out to get a wireless router when they already have a wired router and all they needed was a standalone WAP device plugging it into the wire router to have wireless and went on about their business.
