Getting routers to accept another router's private subnet
Posted on 2014-01-18
I am using Verizon FIOS router for my FIOS internet connection. I have another router, Belkin WNDR3700, connected to the FIOS router, so that I can extend the range. My connection between the two routers is FIOS router LAN port to Belkin WAN port. The subnet associated with the FIOS router is 192.168.1.x and the subnet associated with the Belkin router is 192.168.2.x. I have set the Belkin router to static IP for convenience. It is set to 192.168.1.2. Both routers are DHCP. I have created two network objects in the FIOS router: Subnet 1 and Subnet 2 to represent each subnet. I setup a static route in the FIOS modem: 192.168.2.0, 192.168.1.1, 255.255.255.0. I have setup two firewall filters in the FIOS modem: 192.168.1.0 -> 192.168.2.0 for both in and out. I have made no additional changes to the Belkin router.
I can access all of my 192.168.1.x subnet devices when connected to either subnet. I can access internet from any device. However, I cannot access 192.168.1.x subnet devices when connected to the 192.168.2.x subnet. I have attempted to create a static route on the Belkin like I did for the Verizon modem without luck. When setting up the Belkin static route, i get an error that the address conflicts with the WAN address. My Belkin static route settings are: 192.168.1.0, 192.168.2.1, 255.255.255.255.
I am unable to ping the 192.168.2.x devices from 192.168.1.x devices.
What can I do????
