How do two routers communicate with each other?

Routers tell each other routes to subnetworks; only the local routers need to be able to send to specific machines (and that’s what MAC addresses and ARP are for). Routers talk to each other about routes via BGP; from time to some, some ISP messes up there and large chunks of the internet cease to work.

Can you connect two routers together?

Home wireless routers can be connected using Ethernet cable in the same way as wired routers are connected. Connecting two home routers over wireless is also possible, but the second router can only function as a wireless access point instead of a router in most configurations.

How do I interconnect two networks?

All you have to do in the router that connects the two networks it this:

  1. Configure each of two Ethernet ports into different VLANs.
  2. Assign each VLAN an IP address in one of your two networks.
  3. Connect each port to the network that port’s VLAN has an IP address in.
  4. Make sure the router is configured to do routing.

Which cable is used to connect two routers dynamic routing?

LAN/WAN Connection The second method of combining two routers into one network is with a network cable. In case of a LAN/WAN connection, use a network cable to connect the LAN port of the main router with the WAN/Internet port of the other (secondary) router.

Can I use a second router to boost my wireless signal?

If your current router has a free Ethernet port, you can simply connect another router to it with an Ethernet cable and place the new router anywhere you want. Since the maximum recommended length for Cat5e cable is around 100 meters, you can position the new router pretty much anywhere you want.

Can I extend my Wi-Fi range with another router?

You can easily extend your Wi-Fi network with additional networking hardware like Wi-Fi repeaters and Wireless Access Points. The other inexpensive option is that you get hold of an old wireless router, one that is longer in use, and connect it to your existing (main) router using an Ethernet (Cat5) cable.

Can I run one router off another?

How do I connect two routers to each other?

You could configure a rfc 1918 address on the f0/1 interfaces. This will allow the 2 routers to pass traffic. Setup the hop as a backup route or use some other dynamic routing protocol.

How to set up a VPN between two routers?

You could stick a L3 switch behind both routers (i.e inbetween the clients and the routers) and then use some Static routing to ensure the traffic that needs to go across the VPN does and the Internet traffic uses a default route towards the Router which terminates the Internet connection. 10-20-2015 10:56 PM 10-20-2015 10:56 PM

How to connect a 3560 to a VLANs router?

You need two subnets, one to sit between the 3560 and the Internet Router and Another to sit between the 3560 and the VPN Router. On the 3560, you can either use SVI interfaces and simply put the ports into Vlans or use the no switchport command and give the interfaces which go to the Routers an IP address directly. 10-21-2015 02:08 AM
