Second Wifi Network Using Same Gateway


Recommended Posts

Should be easy, but I'm having trouble getting started, so if someone can point me in the right direction....

I have AT&T uverse gateway. Has 4 ports and the wireless network is setup.

I have a new Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band Router (WNDR3400). I'd like to create a second wireless network so I can use the N600 for video streaming. Can't figure out how to connect the wireless N600 router and set this up. Can I use one the ports on the Uverse gateway as input to the N600. Wouldn't I connect it to the Ethernet "In" port? Do I need a patch cable or a cross-over cable? Is it possible to set the SSID the same on both networks so that any device will pick the strongest signal?

Thanks in advance.
