How to get 192.168.0.x and 192.168.3.x to play nice with each other?
Posted on 2007-07-27
I have a customer with a 16 workstation network in which 4 of the workstations cannot see the other 12.
[DSL Modem] 192.168.1.254-----192.168.1.2 [DLink Broadband router]192.168.0.1---- ------192.168.0.10[Linksys]192.168.3.1----------192.168.3.100[HP Workstation group in question]
Most (12) workstations in the network are in the 192.168.0.x network.
192.168.0.x CANNOT get ping back from 192.168.3.x
192.168.3.x DO get ping back from 192.168.0.x and 192.168.1.x network (the network between the DSL modem and the Dlink)
All 16 workstations have internet access (both the ones in the .0.x network and the .3.x)
Workstations in the .3.x network cannot see .0.x in Windows Network Neighborhood
Workstations in the .0.x network cannot see .3.x in Windows Network Neighborhood
Linksys is a basic Wireless-Broadband router WRT54G
Both the Linksys and the DLink are also wireless routers, each on with its own wireless network name.
Both the Dlink and the Linksys are DHCO servers for their own downstream networks and clients from the next router up (meaning the DSL modem acts as a DHCP server to the DLink and the Dlink acts as a DHCP server to the Linksys).
There is no 192.168.2.x
So: How can I get everyone to see everyone? - They do not necessarily need to be in different networks, that was just the way it was when I got there. I would love to set the Linksys into switch mode, but I see no way of doing that in the setup menu, the options are only DHCP clients, PPPoE, PPTP, Telstra and Fixed IP.
Also, what happens to the wireless network if I do that?, would it still work?
