(I think it'll need to go to the switch but I'm not 100% sure) So, I'd like to create a network where the following happens: .The desktop PC can access the internet, the NAS and the printer. .The laptop can access the NAS and the printer. .The laptop CANNOT access the internet. How would you guys recommend setting this up? In basics, I'd like to be able to have a wired internet connection from the switch while not providing internet access through the wireless router. wee eddie 18:19 07 Nov 2016 Turn off the WiFi on the Router and get a set of Home Plugs boyo123boyo 13:44 08 Nov 2016 If I turn off the WiFi on the router, I won't be able to connect laptops or tablets to the network, therefore not allowing them to connect to the NAS.
