Now I have some computers that are used for "normal" applications on the 2nd line. I would like to be able to access the other DSL network from the recently installed 2nd one for a number of reasons by a 2nd direct connection that would eliminate swapping cables. I have a "Dynamic DNS" service for the other setup but connecting that way uses bandwidth from both routers. As a side note, I have a NAS that has two ethernet connections. Is it possible to connect it to both routers? (based on the "quality" of some of the answers to others I have seen here, I am reluctant to contribute financially until I see a useful answer. Sorry.
