Shaw "upgraded" me to a Cisco DPC3825 a year or two ago. It's not broadcasting a SSID and I have my own home router connected to port 1.
My question is whether I can hook up another router to one of the other ports? I want a second wifi that bypasses my primary router's wifi (to troubleshoot some issues with an IOT device).
It doesn't appear that I can do this as my external IP seems to be passed through to the main router on port 1. Maybe I need a second external IP? Or can I switch the Shaw Cisco DPC3825 into router mode and enable it's SSID broadcast for the IOT device (while leaving my primary home router/wifi still working on a hardwired port, just with an internal DHCP obtained IP from the DPC3825 for WAN instead of my external IP).
