created a scope on the dhcp. the computers get the ip in the 11 range but cannot access internet and shared drives

The ip range is full on the dhcp, so i created a new scope ( included both ip ranges into a superscope.Also i added the details in the router's access list. New computers joining the domain get the ip in the 11.0 range but still they cannot access the internet and neither the shared drives and printers.What could be the problem?I s there another step which i missed?

Something needs to provide routing between subnets or you need to change the subnet mask on the router interface, DHCP scope and clients to  What type of router?  If Cisco, you can apply the subnet as a secondary address to the LAN interface.

int fa0/1
ip address secondary

The router/firewall is Cisco T801. Attached i enclosed the router config for your information.I added the new ip range in the 140 access list as highlighted in the attachments.Thanks
Add the subnet as a secondary on the VLAN2 interface.

conf t
int vlan2
ip address secondary

Make sure is the default gateway for the 192.168.11.x clients.

Looks like your access-list also is missing statements to allow the hosts to resolve DNS externally and allow ICMP like the .10 subnet.

conf t
access-list 140 permit udp any eq domain
access-list 140 permit icmp any
Unless you have multiple subnets in the .10  scope, or a logical reason
for this subnet division; I would suggest thinking of using one DHCP scope
instead of 2.   You can define 2 pools in the scope,  one for some ips in the .10
range and one for some ips in the .11 range   as a /23   i.e. with netmask  
instead of
(use one big pool instead of 2 pools)

Change the subnets accordingly on your domains.

A downside is any devices with a static IP now also need the netmask updated

The disadvantage is the change may be harder;  the advantage is, going
forward, administration of one subnet is simpler than administration of two subnets.

Also, you can keep a simpler router configuration

permit udp   any eq domain
instead of

permit udp any eq domain
permit udp any eq domain

*Well,  given the limitations of  RIPv1, you appear to have in
that conf, you still need to advertise  two class C  networks.

You should considere chage everything to bigger subnet- like on will ive you 65k adresses, group then lagicaly:  -servers darm -office users -contractors -VPN users -guests

and so on. much easy managed then
And have VLAN's set up

Something like this
genral info

Some example VLAN usage you can find on EE, Cisco web or many others.............


Of cause Cisco is top of the line,but Netgear might be more suitable for you.
Sorry ,did not typed correctly......  -servers farm -office users -contractors -VPN users -guests
and so on
