Hello. I'm trying to implement a new subnet on my network to open up more usable IP addresses. I understand that I need to change the subnet mask to 255.255.254.0 which will allow clients to communicate within both the 192.168.0.0 and 192.168.1.0 networks.
I have added the address "192.168.1.1" as a secondary IP address under my Ethernet0/0 configuration with the correct subnet mask. On my workstation I have changed my subnet mask as well. However, I still cannot ping my router using the new IP address. Does it have to be rebooted?
I am also using a Watchguard Firebox firewall and need some pointers on getting it configured. I have added a new route for 192.168.1.0/24 to 192.168.0.1, but have not yet been able to get things going. Thanks.
