Hello Experts
We just setup a wireless network for internet access only.
It is under a 192.168.5.0 subnet, and in DMZ created on the firewall.
It is restricted to access the internet only.
I am wondering how we can test out if the wireless network is able to access our internal network which is 192.168.2.0
Thanks

Have you tried to just "Ping" a target Ip address on the 2.0 network? Unless its routed specifically to that subnet, you shouldnt be ablt to communicate to those resources on that network.

As long as you aren't routing from 1 subnet to the other, you should be fine. Since your ping failed, it obviously isnt seeing the other subnet which is what you wanted. Hope this helped.
