Connect wireless connection to Class B network
Posted on 2006-10-30
We previously had a class C network. Were running out of IP's.
Now have a class B network, with Cisco 5510 connected to DSL and Cisco 50x connected to cable. DHCP provided by netware server. Previously, with Class C address, we had a Linksys wireless access point connected to the network to provide internet access for outside board of directors.
We currently have available Linksys router from old Class C network that connected to cable modem.
DSL - Cisco 5510 - 172.16.0.1, 255.255.0.0 Iprism network access device protects this device
Cable - Cisco 50x - 172.16.1.3 255.255.0.0
We would like to use the Linksys wireless access point to connect to the linkysys router to go over the 172.16.1.3 gateway. It would be ideal to have DHCP provided by the Linksys router only to wireless users using Class C Address and go directly to the 172.16.1.3 gateway without access to any of the Class B network addresses other than the 172.16.1.3 gateway. Is this possible and how do you configure the Linksys router.
I was not using the Wan port and tried to configure an older Linksys router, setting in router versus gateway mode and could not get it to work properly.
