Windows 7: Lan to Lan Help

I need some help in wondering (if possible) to set up two routers (Netgear N600 routers)? Here's my problem:

In House A (My Barn) I have 3 camera's hook up to my router. In House B (My House), I have a N600 hookup to my modem and 3 of my computers. What would it take to be able to hook up House A to House B, so that I can view my House A camera's? I hope this makes sense. If you need more clarification, please leave a message.

Thanks.

Parman -

So I guess it can be done. If you don't mind let me go into a little bit more detail.

Inside my house I have a router which is connected to my modem (sat. internet which I hate) I have 1 computer (wired) to port #1. I have a tablet (wireless) which isn't using a port. I have 1 computer (wired/wireless) to port #2. Then I have a printer (wired) to port #3. Then I have just a cable that is going into the router when I take my lap top back to the office. So all the ports are being used. So if all ports are used, what do I need to extend my ports to ports 5-9? The type of router I have is a Netgear N600.

Now because of the distances (over 100') I've decided to use wired. Now inside my barn I will be getting 3 cameras which can be connected to the net so that you can either view the objects on your computer or phone. So there goes 3 ports. on the 2nd N600 router, would I follow the tutorial?

Thanks

You will need to get a switch, you could even get 2 switches if you want and run the network

Modem > Router >Switch1>all wired equipment connected to router lan port or switch (with one cable going from router lan port to any switch port. > Switch2 > Cameras

Or

Modem > Router >Switch1>all wired equipment connected to router lan port or switch (with one cable going from router lan port to any switch port. > Rotuer 2 (with DHCP Disabled and cable from switch to router in router lan port )> Cameras

All you have to do is turn the second router into a switch. You do that by turning off the DHCP server in the second router and NOT using the Internet/WAN port on the second router. you also have to assign it an IP in the same range, 192.168.1.X (or whatever your LAN IP addresses are) and outside the DHCP Pool range of the first router.

He would have to get a switch because all of his lan ports are already used on his router in his house.
