    Guest Network via LAN?

    Maybe I'm missing something basic. On the RT2600 and/or MR2200ac, is there no way to associate ethernet ports/connections with the guest network rather than the main network? That is: I have two wireless networks running on my Synology routers - the main one, and the guest. The guest does...

    MR2200AC passthrough ethernet?

    I have an RT2600ac and am considering adding an MR2200AC, to get wireless coverage at the far end of the house. The manual on the MR2200AC is not super comprehensive, unfortunately. Need to know whether the MR2200AC can be connected by (obviously very long) ethernet cable to the RT2600AC and...

    Hello, I just tried to set up NordVPN at the router level using OpenVPN. The good news is that the setup connects. The bad news is I lose about 87 percent of my internet speed (from 230 mbps to ~30 mbps). That is not really workable for me here, so I effectively cannot use the VPN at the...
