Connecting two wifi routers
Posted on 2010-01-04
I have two routers in my home. One is for my personal network (PS3, main computer, wife's laptop), and the other is a test network (couple of standard machines and a server).
The test network router is just plugged into the home router's 10/100/1000 port. It has DHCP turned off and is set to use the home router as a gateway. It's ip address is 10.1.10.1 and the client systems on the test network range from 10.1.10.2 to 10.1.10.4, using 10.1.10.1 as THEIR gateway.
Now I want the server on the test network (IP of 10.1.10.2) to have some ports exposed on the internet and I believe I have to set up a static route between the home router and the test network router, correct?
However, I can't seem to get anything to work. The home network is completely different. It has the typical home IP range of 192.168.0.1 for the router and 2-254 for the client machines on the network.
My home router (DI-655) supports routes and asks me for a destination IP, NETMASK, and gateway IP.
