Two networks connecting with route add
Posted on 2009-06-29
My father has a small company. Owner internet provider (Belgacom) has put a Speedtouch 608 router that we count not manage. He has Ip-address 192.168.254.1 mask 255.255.255.248. DHCP is disabled and the range is set from 192.168.254.2 till 192.168.254.5. To be able to connect more than 4 PC's I have bought a seconde router a belkin 4000df. I have set the wan ip as 192.168.254.2 and the lan ip as 192.168.2.1 mask 255.255.255.0, DHCP is enabled and the firewall is disabled.
The problem is that the computers on the first router can not connect to the computers on the second router.
Ex. PC1 with ip address 192.168.254.4 PC2 with ip-address 192.168.2.9. A ping on PC1 to PC2 gives a time-out.
So I add a route on PC1: route add 192.168.2.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.254.2 metric 2. The ping is still not working and with tracert 192.168.2.9 I see no route.
What must I do do so PC1 can ping (connect) to PC2?
Thanks a lot
