Hello! My first post here.
I bought two routers (Netgear R7800) a couple of months ago and now I'd like to implement two separated networks sharing a single internet connection.
My actual setup is:
- Router 1 (192.168.1.1) receives internet connection on WAN port and shares it on WiFi + all LAN ports;
- Router 2 (192.168.1.2) linked to Router 1 via ethernet cable and spawning its own WiFi network.
What I would like to achieve
- Router 1 keeps its IP, WiFi and Internet connection;
- Router 2 goes to IP 192.168.2.1 and takes Internet connection from Router 1, so that the two networks are separated, possibly each with their own firewall zone
Reading some documentation, I understood that this should be achieved by setting up a VLAN but I wasn't able to do it. I tried setting up a VLAN with VID 2 on both devices, both with cpu0 tagged and the two ports which connect the routers via ethernet cable to untagged but it doesn't work (and it seems to me the correct solution so I must have not fully understood the docs).
Can someone help, please?
All the help is much appreciated!
