I am trying to add a 2nd router to my home network. 1st router is adsl modem (Netcomm NB1300 Plus 4) and is connected by regular port and regular cable to regular port on the wireless router which is a Dlink DL-624.
1st router is 192.168.1.1 / 255.255.255.0 and dhcp enabled. Router 2 is 192.168.1.2 / 255.255.255.0 and dhcp has been disabled. The gateway all over is set to 192.168.1.1.
The pc's on router 2 can ping pc's on router 1 and have full internet access. However the pc on router 1 cannot ping the pc's on router 2.
Oh, my bad! D'oh! One of the Solaris servers clinging to life with massive corruption actually had a qfe interface sharing the same ip address as a windows box. Unplumbed it and it all worked.
Anyone have any questions on how to get multiple routers working just ask me. Learned a lot in the last couple of days .
My computers behind my 2nd router can connect to the computer behind the 1st router which, is a 2wire 3801 gateway. They can also get out on they web. The computer behind the 2wire can ping the 2nd router, but cannot ping/see the 2 computers. Also, even though the computer behind the 2wire can be pinged, it cannot get to the 2nd router's administration page.
