Wired connection to access office domain and wi-fi to access internet
Posted on 2006-04-20
I have a small office LAN, windows 2003 SB server running a domain, 4 workstations attached via a 8-port switch. There is a stand-alone workstation that had internet access via a westell DSL modem. The customer had purchased a linksys wireless kit (wireless router & wireless USB NIC) in hopes of allowing one of the wired workstations to have internet access. I installed the wireless router at the stand-alone PC, configured the westell to bridged mode and attached to router, connected the stand-alone PC to the linksys router (4-port wired and wireless) via wired connection. The problem I'm having is with the networked PC. My thoughts is this setup would be like a bridge only without the actual bridge (they don't want the rest of the domain to have internet access). On the networked PC, with both connection active, I can access the server but not the internet, if I kill the wired connection I can then access the internet via the wireless connection. I have tried both connections on a 192.168.1.x segment and with the wired on a 192.168.1.x and the wireless on a 192.168.2.x, doesn't make any differrence.
What am I missing? Thanks in advance.
