Two seperate lans sharing one internet connection
Posted on 2007-12-06
Heres whats up. Im trying to create a test network which incorporates several different servers and client machines running SQL services as well as third party software such as Made2Manage and others which are used to communicate with various machines on the manufacturing floor. The problem that i have is that i noticed that our "Main" Made2manage Server can ping the primary lan which is a big concern for us, but we cannot ping the second lan from the primary lan. Our current setup is as follows:
1.netopia router which serves up our internet connection among other things.
DNS on DC 192.168.100.12
2.Linksys WRT54gs router running dd-wrt (latest version) connected to a switch that is directly connected to the primary netopia router.
Wan IP coutesy of dhcp from netopia
Local ip: 192.168.1.1
local Sub: 255.255.255.0
local GW: 192.168.1.1
local dns: 192.168.1.1
3. Linksys wrt300n router connected to the Linksys w/ dd-wrt
Wan ip Courtesy of dhcp from WRT54gs
Local ip: 10.10.2.1
local Sub: 255.255.255.128
local GW: 10.10.2.1
local dns: 10.10.2.1
As is we can get connectivity to the interweb which is a must since remote access via gotomypc will be used over the weekend but as stated above we want to completely separate contact of any kind betweeen the two networks while mainting internet connectivity.
Is this possible in general, with our current hardware or will we need more robust equipment?
Thanks in advance!
