Hello All

I have WIMAX Zyxel CPE MAX-206M2 and ADSL Router - Linksys Wireless-G home ADSL gateway, I have them both connected to each other and configured them on the same segment so I can configure clients to have static IP address with different gateway.

The problem is whenever these 2 are connected to eachother the WIMAX connection will keep dropping out and internet will never connect constantly the whole day.

All of my users have laptops and they are connected to the WIMAX and ADSL through the linksys device using it's WIFI capability. The thing which i've noticed only today is when I disconnected the cable connected between both of them then Internet to the wimax will never get disconnected.

I know that if I connect the Wimax to an access point it will work and i will get a good speed and connection but I need them both to be on the same segment so all my users can connect to the local server which is using ADSL connection for FTP file syncing and also to the central printer that we have in the office.

Is there anyway where I can do something to change the topology and still can can my users user the Wimax internet and be in the same local area network ...!

Any suggestion is appreciated.

Thanks
Mohammed JH

Toughie! Pin pointing network issues like this takes a greater understanding of the hardware and its configuration.

Have you considered using VPN functionality?

VPN ? How would you use VPN with such thing ! i'm not really sure I don't have much knowledge of VPN.
I know this could be done with VLAN or Cisco switches ! but I'm not willing to spend money since I already have a switch not Cisco though.

check the web interfaces for VPN on both of those routers. The zyxel should at least have one.

You would want to use the zyxel gateway to be the one that deals with internal nodes. You can then enable the vpn and allow anyone with an internet connection/on the network (linksys) access to the nodes on the zyxel.

Basically it's not devices problem it's the WIMAX Antenna which belongs to the ISP company doesn't have enough bandwidth.. because on Holidays the internet works perfectly and that means there are less users surrounding the area which I am in!

Apparently it turned out to be a problem with the ISP company.
