DYNANMIC IP RANGES CONFLICTING?

    I HAVE TWO ROUTERS ONE SETUP AS THE GATEWAY AND THE OTHER AS A WIRELESS NETWORK FOR MY DEVICES.

    My gateway router(192.168.1.254)has a DHCP server with an IP range from 192.168.1.1~192.168.1.253

    The other router(192.168.1.1)has a DHCP server with an IP range from 192.168.1.2~192.168.1.253

    There are devices connected to each router having the same dynamic IP addresses which I've seen before when I compared the routing tables. Will these same IP addresses conflict over the internet or does NAT automatically change them?

    Why would you run 2 DHCP servers in the same LAN, handing out addresses in the same range?

    This is usually on the list of Things Not To Do.

    MY LINKSYS ROUTERS AUTOMATICALLY COME WITH A DHCP SERVER, TWO OF WHICH AUTOMATICALLY HAVE THE SAME IP RANGES.

    I DID NOT CHOOSE TO HAVE THEM, I JUST BOUGHT THE ROUTERS AND HOOKED THEM UP TO MY LAN AND IM JUST WONDERING IF THIS WOULD BE A PROBLEM.


    And also when I tried to disable the DHCP server in one of my routers(which ever or even both) none of the devices connected can't connect to the internet, so it seems I pretty much need both servers to be enabled.

    how are these connected to your LAN? is on plugged into the back of the other router?

    if so please turn off on DHCP router and the one which is plugged into the back of the other router will need to be in "Router"mode and not both set at "Gateway" mode.

    A gateway is the gate to the internet. only one router can be the main gateway to the Net.

    Oh yeah btw please, stop shouting....

    Thanks for the info. Toxic.





    And what do you mean "shouting". If I would be shouting I would use an exclamation mark! I use BIG TEXT to point out the main idea when im writing or just forgot to turn of capslock.
