How Can I use a Netgear wnbr 3400 dual band router to create a small private network that will not have any form of internet connection? The purpose for this is to set up my video surveillance system allowing me to access the wireless video feed with my laptop, Ipad, or any Wi-Fi compatible device. It would also serve as a way for my wife and kids and I to use file/photo/messages between wireless devices without any internet access to that router.

However, I want this to allow my family to use the private network to view security cameras and share files, pictures, etc... without internet access. So I need to set up two networks. one with internet access and one without. So I assume I need to set up the IP addresses differently on the non internet router. However, I am not got much of any knowledge on networking. I am a quick learner and can see a process flow. I just not clear on what the different options in the router. The best I can get up to now is using static IP set up with all the cameras, DVR, and wireless equipment that will connect to the netgear router. I am not sure how to accomplish that. My Cisco uses DHSC and range is 192.168.1.100 thru 1.160. So if anyone could help me to choose the DNS or whatever these options and how to change the IP address on the netgear along with any changes in the router to allow for two networks that both are 2.4ghz and 5ghz. It would
