On our network we have 2 subnets
1. Subnet 1-192.168.2.0 /24 : Used for the wired network. This subnet has a windows 2008 Std Server (192.168.2.3) that provides DNS, DHCP and other Services to the network.
2. Subnet 2 - 22.214.171.124/22: Used for the Wireless Network. The Router provides DHCP services for this network.
The Router is a Vigor 2830n Model. Interlan Routing is enabled thus enabling wireless devices to access documents on the Windows 2008 Server. The Interface Ports on the Router for Subnet 1 is 192.168.2.1 and for Subnet 2 is 126.96.36.199.
In one of our labs we have a wired network UTAX printer (192.168.2.169). The lab contained 10 netbooks. They are connected across the wireless network and can access server resources etc. However, they are unable to print to the UTAX printer.
The Printer is setup on each netbook using TCP Port 192.168.2.169. I could setup the printer on the server and set each netbook to point at it there. Is there a way whereby I can leave the existing TCP Port setting in place (I.e. Static Route etc?). I cannot ping the printer from a netbook. All suggestions welcome. Thank You
