I want 2 complete separate networks, as netgear can handle devices from wireless or lan port and apple can also handle devices from wireless or its lan port. Basic its 2 subnets ,from Netgear's Lan to the Apple's WAN. Netgear as main router.

I am having trouble with apple's router, as it keeps showing "your ip is not compatiable with your wan ip"

Anyone can give me a detail setup instruction please. Thank you.

On the netgear (NAT + DHCP)
public IP is supplied by the internet modem
router IP : 192.168.1.1
Devices connected will have 192.168.1.2 --- 192.168.1.x
Subnet mask : 255.255.255.0
DNS: 192.168.1.1

On the apple side: (without lan to wan connected yet, just apple's lan to an apple computer to configure the router)
Under the network tab, I set DHCP+NAT with address 192.168.2.2 to 192.168.2.10 and no check mark next to "Enable default host to: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"

And on the internet tab
Connect using Static?
IPv4 address: 192.168.1.253
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Router Address: 192.168.2.1
DNS Server: 192.168.1.1

When I hit apply the apple just keep showing"your router address is not compatible with your wan ip"

What settings did I enterned wrong?


Thank you in advance.
Thank you.
