Netgear CG3000DCR and two wifi routers

I work from home and have my CG3000DCR, and an Apple router behind it.

My wife just took a work from home job, and we have a need to have a total separate network, including remote INBOUND VPN to her machine.


Is it possible to hang two wifi routers from the back of the Netgear, and successfully route inbound traffic to her side of the switch? Any "gotchas" ?

Hello paulcjones and welcome,


Yes, you can always configure two different routers with different subnet masks and preferrably different IP Adresses to insure that only the VPN address will use the correct router subnet mask and IP Address.


Hope this helps you out.
