This must be easy to do but I cant figure it out.
2 adjoining offices each have a peer to peer LAN set up each with SOHO wireless routers which allow their "clients" to connect independently to the internet and to share files on their respective "networks". The routers (different brands) come set for the 192.168.1.x and 192.168.0.x ranges and hand out ips via DHCPs.
One office (Network A 192.168.0.x) has no printer but the other (Network B 192.168.1.x) has a printer that is shared amongst the X.X.1.X PCs.
Attempts by Net A to print to find the IP address of the printer are unsuccessful. Any PC on Net A (192.168.0.x) can ping the router on Net B which has a fixed IP at 192.168.1.1 but cant ping any other device on Net B. A big server is being built up on Net B and has been granted static IPs of 192.168.1.50 ...51 respectively for its two on board NICS.
How can we set up printing between these two "subnets" given the info above?
How are the two routers connected to each other?
You need to set up a static route on each network that points where to find the other network.
ip route 192.168.0.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1
ip route 192.168.1.0 255..255.255.0 192.168.0.1
Some SOHO routers have this option through the web interface. Above examples are for business class routers like Cisco.
