Connecting two routers
Posted on 2005-05-17
My curr setup is:
Snapgear SG300 fw/router connected to adsl modem acting as a DHCP with subnet of 192.168.0.0
and 3Com officeconnect wireless dsl router with subnet 192.168.1.0
What I would like to do is connect both routers in a way that the 3com unit will be giving wireless service with its own subnet (own subnet not a must) and connecting, as transparent as possible to the snapgear unit and allowing all wireless users to recieve access to all services on the snapgear network (internet, server access, etc.)
I first tryed connecting snapgear lan -> 3com wan and creating static routes on both sides, I get internet on the x.x.1.x network, but no access to computers via hostname.
I believe this is due to the fact that I cannot address private ips via incoming on the wan port, and thus computers on the x.x.1.x network can`t get the browes list and do not participate in the election.
What would be the best way to connect these two networks?
