Cascaded LANs internet access problem Tags: Routers Internet Access Networking Last response: October 23, 2012 9:40 PM in Networking Share Brianb123 October 23, 2012 5:34:51 AM Hello, I'm trying to set up a cascaded network with two subnets. The Primary network is connected to the Internet via a cable modem and works fine in all aspects. The Secondary network is connected via a router WAN port to a LAN port on the Primary network. Both routers are WRT54Gs. I can get on either subnet and see all the devices on that network. What I can't do is access the Internet from LAN2. I assume Router2 (192.168.2.1) needs to be set in Gateway mode and not Router mode. Is this correct? BTW I've tried both with no luck. DNS setting in Router2 is set as the IP Address of Router1 (192.168.1.1) is this correct? The Gateway and DNS settings on Router1 is 192.168.0.1 with a mask of 255.255.0.0 Thanks, BrianB More about : cascaded lans internet access problem RealBeast a b 2 Internet access October 23, 2012 9:40:43 PM No, if you want it to be a different subnet, Router2 should be the router for that second subnet and its gateway is 192.168.2.1 and WAN address is 192.168.1.1 -- the primary router. And your mask should be 255.255.255.0 Take a look here, as it seems like what you are trying to do. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
