OK this is kind of a complicated set up but I have searched and searched and can't find the right answer. I need to set up 2 seperate routers with the uverse modem's wifi off and want to still be able to use the uverse app for a remote. Here's what I have.
The modem address is 192.168.1.254 from there one lan is going into the DVR box, one is going to the wireless thing, one into my own router's lan 192.168.1.250 with DHCP disabled, and the last running to an ethernet switch. From the switch one line is going to my ADT router, the other to the master bedroom then to a box there. Also I have 2 boxes on coax and 2 wireless.
Here is my problem. For some reason when you walk into the master bedroom you can not get wifi no matter where the router is. I want to set up another wifi router in my room. I have configured that router the same as the first only addressed it 188.8.131.52. I bought another ethernet switch to have the ethernet cord coming into the switch then one going to a lan port on my 2nd router and one going to the box. I get decent speed in my bedroom until I turn on the TV then I have no internet conection.
My question is is it not possible to have a router and a box hooked into the same switch? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. With the set up now I am able to use the uverse app as a remote since the Uverse modem is handling everything. I'm just looking for a simpler way that might work better.
