Use NetSetMan to setup your own network profiles. You can set ip configurations and enable/disable NICs for different profiles.

Then activate the profile you want to use. There is a warning that is not compatible with Win10 2004/2009?, just ignore it.

Still getting some sort of conflict.

With both Wireless in use, the first one ... out to the web works fine. The second one, internal devices only is very slow to connect to a device initially and will sometimes time out. Once connected, it seems to work the device OK.

Is this a subnet issue?

WAN 192.168.254.254 ....... 255.255.255.0
Intranet 192.168.254.244 .... 255.255.255.0

If I change the Subnet on one or the other, will it matter?

Right now they're both in the same subnet. There's probably an IP overlap causing the issue.

Since both are using 192.168.254.x/24. You could potentially switch to a /23 and put the cams on anything but .254.x and have them still be teachable.

I forgot all about one item on the LAN that has to have web access full time. Got an email from the company I'm hosting it for saying it's been offline for a week. Ooops!! Oh well.

So, I'm back to where I was until I can figure something else out.

No one is saying intranet for home network. Just say LAN.

And there is no need to put security cameras on a seperate network since you already disable their internet access.

LAN & WAN network never should be in the same IP range, it's totally wrong if they are.

Correct way to connect 2 routers:

Let's say Primary LAN IP is 192.168.1.1, then set secondary router a static LAN IP 192.168.1.2. Put 2nd router in AP mode and turn off DHCP server. Uplink one of 2nd router's LAN ports (not WAN port) to 1st router.​
You can set different SSID for 2 routers then you will know which one you are connecting to.​
