Setup help required - currently multiple subnets/diff IP schema
Posted on 2009-06-28
Been trying to rack my brains on this for a while - even opened a thread on a few forums but then closed it as it got too messy!
It's in regards to my internet setup and needs : at the moment, I find things are messy and slow especially in transfer speeds from pc to pc.
D-link DIR-655 (wireless N-Router)
Billion bipac 7300 ADSL Modem
Currently, the IP address is as follows:
D-link: 192.168.0.x / 255.255.255.0
Billion: 192.168.1.x / 255.0.0.0
Those connected to Billion can't access machines on D-link using machine names ... only IP addresses.
All devices are gigabit connections with correct cabling. However, when something is being transferred from a D-link device (PC) to a Billion device (Lacie network drive), it is painstakingly slow! Putting the machine on the same device as the Lacie drive fixes it or vice-versa.
The only other requirement is currently, the webserver (standard PC) is on the Billion modem and is externally available via port map and dyndns which also gets updated via the Billion.
I would appreciate ANY help on how I can best set this up as I am really getting frustrated remembering IP addresses of devices and having to switch devices during the weekly backups to the Lacie drive.
Thanks in advance!
PS: there was another thread but due to lack of time, I lost track and no longer knew what was going on.
This time round, I am able to take down the router as and when suggestions come in until the end of next week (3rd July) so hopefully we can fix this by then!
