    Networking with two router/addresses

    by nemo1606945953 ·


    Hello. I have a networking question/problem I haven’t found an answer to.

    I have two routers. I have a Netgear Nighthawk cable modem and a Netgear Orbi mesh router. The Orbi is our primary network. I have a lot of wired devices like NAS drives and printers. I also use an unmanaged network switch for some of the devices. Because of speed issues With a NAS, I had to unwire my desktop and go wireless. I prefer to use Ethernet connections.

    My address for the cable modem is The Orbi is Both have a subnet mask of If I wore into the modem, I have more consistent internet speeds, but I can’t communicate or connect to my printers and NAS drives connected to the Orbi.

    My long winded question: what do I do so I can see my whole network? I generally understand networking, but I’m far from a whiz. Thank you!
