We currently have all the computers in our business set up with static IP addresses. Recently, we've been having more customers coming in with their laptops and wanting to use our wireless internet. And we have to set up their laptops with a static IP for them to do so. My question is, can I install another router with DHCP enabled (not static)? And would I run the ethernet from my existing router, or from the cable modem (our modem has extra ports)? I want to make it so that we don't have to make any changes with our existing business computers, and so that a customer can connect to the new router automatically without changing any IP settings.
I'm not really advanced in the network setup field, so detailed explanations would be greatly appreciated.
