mr keys I have this and this facility is perfect for when you want to share a hotel's wifi between a few of your devices. Some hotels only let you connect a limited number of devices or charge by device, so this overcomes this. It also means your devices are NATed so you get a bit extra security.
As a follow up Mr. Keys, I have downloaded the user manual and on page 56 and 57 it does explain in detail that you can either configure the DHCP server to issue IP addresses within the range you need so that other devices on the network are visible or indeed you can disable the DHCP server completely and allow another device on the network to act as the DHCP server and issue IP addresses. Hope that helps
I don't have the device yet but surely you can turn the DHCP server off or configure the DHCP server to distribute addresses within the same range (though without conflict)?
Major flaw. This creates a new sub net mask for any wireless devices attached to it. eg. if your network is 192.168.1.xxx any wireless devices are 10.xxx.x.xxx Thus you can not see any wireless devices on your network. It does this automatically during the setup process to avoid conflicts with the wired network. No manual mode to set up wireless on the same sub net mask! WTF were you thinking Netgear.
Yes, I am cross I missed that Amazon deal!
