    Have router connected to switch

    Wait a minute! I do not want this: Internet > Modem > Router > Switch, but I want Internet > Modem > Router > Switch > Secondary Router. I would like devices that connect to the secondary router to also receive an internet connection. And yes, I understand that it probably makes no sense to do this.

  2. Connectivity issues with windows 10

    I am a student living in hostel, for every 50 rooms there is a switch(wired) connected to main router. Some people use wifi routers to connect other devices. Under my switch, there are around 10 wifi
    routers. I am not using any wifi routers and directly connected to switch. When I set my Ethernet's IPv4 preferences to "obtain IP address automatically" It is registering under TP-Link_84506A router. I am unable to access the internet. I think it should connect
    to main college router. I am using static IP to connect to the main router (CISCO). How to solve this problem without using static IP? Same problem is seen in other laptops under this switch.

    I think it is not TP-Link's mistake. We turned it off and then laptops started to connect to other wifi routers. All of us are using windows 10.

    Note: All Wifi routers have 4 to 6 ethernet ports for wired network connections.

  3. No Home network with windows 10????

    Thank you for your reply

    No that did not work.

    I have the router to the phone line and a NETGEAR GIGABIT SWITCH linked to the router.

    Computers and house LAN system are connected to the switch.

    All was fine until windows 10.

    Have router connected to switch

    And the need for a second Router is what? It can be used as simply another Switch, just don't connect a cable in the Uplink port which usually is for connecting to a Modem.
    Modem to Router Uplink port, RJ45 ports to 3 devices and 4th to the Switch, one port on the Switch to another Switch, show how-to in the manual. I've done it this way but was short 2 ports so changed the 5-port Switch to an 8-port Switch. Two ports are for printers and two ports are for NAS drives. For best speeds the Router/s and Switch should be rated at 10/100/1000 or Gigabit. A Wireless Router should be 802.11n or ac.

    One setup I'm having to work with in the next day or two is adding a Wireless Access Point/WAP to a wired Network, trying to do it with a second Wi-Fi Router as the WAP.

    Well, I found the issue. Just needed to disable the DHCP management of the secondary router and change its IP address so that it would not conflict. Thanks anyway!
