I'm looking for networking experts who can probably help me out here! I'll try to describe my situation with as much detail as possible.
So we have the 2Wire AT&T U-Verse router as our main broadband router; this router gives us Internet and I cannot change or replace this router. I have 3 other routers in 2 different locations, basically providing the different devices I have with Internet access.
What I want to accomplish at the end of everything is
(a) using my main (2Wire) router to assign static IP Addresses to each device on the network;
(b) having a single IP Network (192.168.1.xx) as opposed to multiple;
and (c) the devices should be able to see each other.
Right now, I have 2 of the 3 routers connected to the main (2Wire) router via Ethernet cable. The 3rd router is actually connected to one of the 2 routers via Ethernet cable. I'm connecting the Ethernet from the main (2Wire) to the WAN (Internet) ports on the additional routers .... This I presume is causing an issue as each router is acting as it's own independent router and creating new sub networks (10.0.0.x) etc. I need to change this; and also be able to assign static IP's to each device on the network from one main (2Wire) network.
Any advice in this matter will be extremely helpful!
