2 Netgear routers side by side?

Hello, RAX200 — Nighthawk is my current router.

 

I am going to purchase the Nighthawk Tri-band Mesh WiFi 6 System 3.6Gbps Router + 2 Satellites.

 

I want to continue to user the RAX200 as my router. Can I disable DHCP on the Mesh router?

 

Thank you,

 

Dan

   None of that is a model number.  Find an actual model number on the
router product label or package.

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your (actual) model number,
and look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual (at least).  Read.
Look for a topic like "Set up the router as a WiFi access point".

   Configuring it as a wireless access point would do that.  Among other
things:

   Simply disabling the DHCP server should also be possible, but is
almost certainly _not_ what you want to do.  Look in the User Manual for
a topic like "Disable the DHCP server feature in the router".  (But
don't do that.)
