Connecting Two Subnets on the Same LAN
Posted on 2013-01-07
This is a rehash of a question I posted a few weeks ago.
We have some new manufacturing equipment in our shop and the vendor configured the equipment using his subnet 192.168.10.0/24. Our local subnet is 10.0.2.0/24. We have other equipment from this vendor that was properly configured for our subnet. He can VPN into our network and access that equipment to make programming changes and that works fine.
I thought the simplest way to access the new equipment was to setup a router which I did, a Cisco WRV210. I setup the WAN side of the router with an address from my subnet, and the LAN side with an address to match the vendors subnet. I setup a new subnet,192.168.10.0 and created a static route to the new router on my existing router.
From my side and can ping both the WAN side (10.0.2.10) and LAN side (192.168.10.1) of the new router, but none of the equipment. If I plug into the LAN side of the router and give my laptop of static address for that subnet, I can ping all the equipment, but I cannot ping anything on the other side of the new router.
Routing is not my thing so please dumb down your answers.
