Re: Connecting 2 netgear routers C6300BD

Hey ahmekh,

 

With the Cable service you can only have the one active MAC address assigned to your account and connected to the internet. Therefore in order for this to work you would have to have the main service connected directly via the Cable outlet and the second via an Ethernet connection to this modem. If you have an Ethernet cable long enough then you can have this device in another room and both devices having a different WiFi connection available for you to connect to.

Thanks for your answer. I tried your method connecting LAN cable from LAN port of the main modem to the WAN port of the 2nd one. This didn't work. Any other steps I should do?

Can you just have this connected to an Ethernet port on the second modem and not the WAN and see if this does work?

I tried multiple attempt with no benefit.
I switched between lan ports 1 to 4 without any benefit.
Sometimes I get internet but modem connection keep disconnecting.
Is there any setting or firewall I need to change ?
