I have xfinity ISP with modem ip of 10.0.0.1, there is google wifi plugged into the modem with its ip of 192.168.86.1. I am using 2 ubiquiti nanobeam gen 2's to link my barn via an ethernet port off of my google wifi hub.

I am able to send the signal 100ft to the barn with great signal. When plugging into the barn end it is like I would be plugging directly into the google wifi hub.

I am trying to connect a Asus RT-AC68U wireless router to that connection in my barn. I want people to be able to log into my wifi but not see the home network devices.

When trying to use the ASUS as a router it says that there is some kind of ip conflict. When in AP mode the router works without errors but I am able to see the home network.

Is there a solution? Also in router mode if It will work, is there a way I can set up a camera and access it online even though it would be going through double nat?

Thanks for your help

You have to boot the Asus without connection to the Google home. Then change the IP of the router to a different subnet from the google router. That will change the IP range of the DHCP server. That should take care of your IP conflict.

Make sure the router address on the LAN tab is not a 192.168.86.x number. That would be in the same subnet as the google home.

You want the router IP on the LAN tab to be 192.168.99.1 -- SOMETHING other than 86 as the third set of digits. Set the DHCP range to be 192.168.99.100 - 192.168.99.150
The 255.255.255.0 is the subnet mask. That should remain unchanged.

So for this I would put 192.168.99.1, with subnet mask of 255.255.255.0



And on this I would make ip starting pool 192.168.99.100 and ending pool to 192.168.99.150?

I dont have to worry about changing any of the default gateway and DNS server do I?

Correct on the first graphic. You could set the LAN IP of the router to 192.168.99.1 with the subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
You would enable the DHCP server. Then you can put the start and ending addresses. The software will automatically populate the first three sets based on the router IP address (I think). I like to use 100 to 150 for DHCP just because it leaves the high and low address space available for other things.
You don't need to do manual IP assignments.
