Hello,
I have a particular scenario. I have my main router hooked into a second router (main router LAN port to second routers WAN port). I have my NAS hooked into the second router via ethernet. Internet connections work well on both and I can see all devices that reside on the same LAN that Im connected to. What I cant figure out is how I can get devices on the main router to be able to see the NAS. Is there any way for devices that are connected to my main router to be able to see the NAS given that the NAS is hooked into the second router?

do you need to have two separate networks?

Thanka for the reply. Yes I do have 2 networks. Each has its own SID. I'm guessing I'm out of luck?

you can have two SSID on one network, the question is are poeple connected on the second router allowed to see computers on the first router and vice versa?

if all the devices are allowed to see each other, you can configure the second router as an AP (access point).
