My office has a 100mbps fibre internet and we connect all devices to it via a Netgear WNR3500L. I am thinking of subscribing to another 200mbps with another ISP (because the current ISP does not have a higher plan and we're bounded by contract). The 200mbps comes with a Cisco RV220W router.
I am thinking of the following network setup - diagram in the link below. Basically I would like to split my office computers to have separate internet connections.
However, I need the computers to be able to access each other:
- All laptops must be able to access the printer which is connected via a LAN cable (eg. in the diagram the Dell laptops must be able to print).
- Similarly all laptops must be able to access the Synology NAS (eg. in the diagram the Lenovo laptops must be able to access the Synology NAS).
- Laptops should be able to access each other via IP addresses - because some are web developers and they run WAMP. Easier to review developmental sites on their IP addresses (eg. in the diagram the Dell laptops, via their browsers, must be able to access the lenovo laptops via their internal IP address).
- There're two DHCP routers but each router has MAC filtering to only allow respective group of laptops (this feature is confirmed available).
- Would this configuration be possible for the above requirements?
- Or do I need both routers to use the same SSID?
- Or do I need to link the two routers via a LAN cable?
- Or do I need one router to be a DHCP while the other router is not?
- Or do I need some form of subnet masking?
- Or some of the above?
