Internal Network Access on Different Subnets
Posted on 2014-03-11
I can configure this but I would like to educate myself on the best practice and also why. I understand subnets but I am not great at it.
I have new firewall which will replace a poor wireless router that is being used as the gateway for internet but can not handle load.
Right now wireless laptop's, iPad's and couple of printers that are wireless. Since everything is on the wireless including 2 servers and 5 PC's and a LAN based printer they all share the same IP range of an 192.168.6.XXX range.
Now with the firewall it will become the gateway replacing out the wireless.
The wireless will become just the wireless extension of the network.
QUESTION is how to I insure prefect cross talk. Since the router will take a WAN IP of 192.168.6.XXX and then it will have a new range for its LAN that it will be giving out the all the wireless devices.
Want to insure that the wireless printers that I can print from the LAN to them and the wireless devices can printer to the LAN and
the servers have mapped drives so I need to insure that the wireless laptops can map all the drives to the servers on a different IP range.
Any help and education is greatly appreciated.
