|Thanks for the quick responses.|
I have both routers with different IP addresses with DHCP enabled:
router1 192.168.1.1 - dishes 1.100 - 1.110
router2 192.168.1.2 - dishes 2,200 - 2.202
Each router is connected to a cable modem with its own Internet connection.
I have the two Internet connections to alleviate too many users on the single Internet connection causing slowdowns (which is more the router than the broadband from my understanding...but that is a different post if it comes to that). So I would like to set something up where a) all users on either network can see each other, etc. OR b) I can see all users on the other network,etc., with a preference to a.
As for a switch between the routers and the PCs, I don't think that would work. I am dishing out wireless and wired on the router 1 and only wired (wireless disabled) on router 2. Or would that not matter?
Otherwise...any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
