How to "segment" networks / traffic on a home network with two routers?
Posted on 2007-11-17
I am setting up some servers at home and want to segment my network so that I have a "server" network (192.168.10.x) and a standard network (192.168.0.x).
I have two standard home routers - 192.168.0.x is currently connected to the internet and assigns IPs with DHCP.
I have the second router set with a static IP address of 192.168.10.1 also with DHCP - I have tried this router in gateway and router modes with the LAN cable from 192.168.0.x connected to the WAN and LAN ports of 192.168.10.x to try and get this working.
I am either unable to get a 192.168.10.x IP address or I am unable to get to the internet from 192.168.10.x.
I have set up other routers as basic switches on the 192.168.0.x network by simply disabling DHCP but do not know how to set up this more advanced configuration.
Any advice is much appreciated.
