Happy Monday everyone,

Ok so, my question is a networking related as well as related to Tetra setup. I would like to configure my tetra on a different subnet than my home network. so any device that connects to my tetra can't communicate with other devices that is connected to my home network (unless I setup port forwarding).

Here is how I want it to be:

Comcast > port1 > Netgear switch > home devices connected

Comcast > port2 > Tetra > lab devices connected wirelessly 

which means is that I have one Comcast modem ( 4ports) that I want to setup two networks: one is for my home devices and one for lab devices which I want to setup the tetra on.

thanks in advance for stopping by and taking the time to read my post,

Short answer is that the devices connected to the Tetra will have the IP address set by the Tetra and the other devices on your home network will not be able to communicate with them and the clients on the Tetra will not be able to communicate with your home devices through the LAN itself.  

Router > Tetra > clients 172.16.42.xxx

Router > switch > clients 10.0.0.xxx

you can communicate with the clients connected to the Tetra but those clients cant see your home clients on the switch

Thanks for your answer b0N3z. That's You're exactly right, I am getting the same IP scheme you mentioned for the Tetra and home network but it's weird that they can ping each other. Is there a way that I can configure the router and Tetra not to communicate at all as if they are in different locations ? I mean by that set them up as segregated network, I don't want to block any devices.

 Also, you mentioned at the end that I can communicate with the clients connected to the Tetra and the clients connected to the Tetra can't see to my home clients on the switch, could you please explain how this works in a very short answer ? I would like to know how this works in a networking way.

Thanks again
