Setting up an interior gateway router (IGR) on Netgear WNDR 3800

Let’s say you want a second router upstairs in your home, where you have run an ethernet cable, what do you do? (Wireless only meshes, or failover from ethernet to wireless is also possible, in CeroWrt).

“Yesterday jg and I were working on cleaning up

 and it is still pretty dense.” Dave Taht, developer, CEROwrt.

CeroWrt routes by default, not bridges. This brings in some complexity in setup but large gains in latency.

For information on bridging, rather than routing, see Setting up CeroWrt to bridge. See also Tuning your CeroWrt default gateway.
