Multiy Router Network - Need Help Configuring
Posted on 2007-10-15
I would like to set-up a network between three buildings and assign a block of IP addresses to each building. My current network configuration is as follows:
Internet to Router01, Router 01 to Switch01, Clients in Building01 connected to Switch01
IP of Router01 192.168.1.1
DHCP Enabled allowing 50 Clients in the range of 192.168.1.100 - 188.8.131.52
Switch02 connected to Switch01 via Fiber, Clients in Building 02 connected to Switch02 getting their IP addresses from Router01
Switch03 connected to Switch01 via Fiber, Clients in Building02 connected to Switch03 getting their IP addresses from Router01
What I'd like to do is give the following block of IP addresses while maintaining communication between all clients on the network:
IP Range: 192.168.1.100-149
IP Range: 192.168.150-199
IP Range 192.168.200-249
I would like to add a router in each building before the switch, however, I am unsure how to configure the settings in the sub-routers. Router01 should be able to operate how it is. The routers I own are: Linksys RV042. All three are identical.
I am very frustrated as I feel I understand enough to be dangerous, but only enough to make me more frustrated when my attempts don't work. :-)
Any guidance would be GREATLY appreciated.
