Manage a segregated wireless network remotely

detox1978 used Ask the Experts™
Hi All,

We have a branch office that gets a lot of visitors who want to access the internet.

Rather than giving them access to our LAN, I've ordered a new ADSL connection, which comes with a wireless router.

How can I manage the wireless router?

If its the adsl router from your service provider, it should have an option to manage from the public facing interface. If this is not the way you want to go, you can plug one LaN port on the adsl router into the remote office switch and bind a secondary ip address to a computer or server. This will allow you to manage the wifi by connecting to the remote computer


Ah.... your a star... manage from the internet.... no idea why or how i forgot that. doh.

You're Welcome! :)
