Wired-only router in front of a wireless router
The R9000 does a good job. However I like to add and ASA5505 between the modem and the R9000, at a TP-Link R600VPN. I need to set up site to site VPN between the the two TP-Links R600VPN. Right now I use the Synology NAS to do that. I also want to do more filtering before the R9000 or have an ACL blocking IP adress ranges form those I find in my R9000 logs. So the question is can I do this? Can I set up a static route? The R9000 is a DHCP outside. How would I configure a route, between the TP-Link R600VPN and the R9000. What would I put in the router for traffic for "Internet" address etc.

Do you mean a Cisco ASA 5505?

I don't understand how any of this stuff is actually connected.

If you connect some other router to the WAN/Internet port of an
R9000, then I'd guess that you would want to add a static route on the
other router like:
Destination: <R9000_LAN_base_address> (like: 192.168.1.0)
Subnet: <R9000_LAN_subnet> (like: 255.255.255.0)
Gateway: <R9000_WAN_address> (consistent with other-router LAN)

Which "the router"? I wouldn't expect you to need to make any
changes to the R9000, only to the router(s) between the R9000 and the
Internet. I know nothing about any of your non-Netgear equipment, so I
can't help more with its configuration.
