Is there any reason why all your devices aren't on the same subnet? You could make them all and they should work together.

What is your subnet mask for each subnet? Is there a router of some kind in between?

What device is segregating the two subnets?

The two subnets have to be given permission to access each other, depending on how you want the access to be setup.  They have to have DMZ (In this case, true DMZ - not end user router DMZ).
Portable, direct connect server access

The ATEN CV211 connects a laptop directly to any server allowing you instant access to perform data maintenance and local operations, for quick troubleshooting, updating, service and repair.

I used Google and my knowledge to make it work.

Used a wireless router that is pure pass thru. Instead of being a router it just passes the wireless on the same subnet LAN.

Didn't setup DMZ.  Would not worked in the environment due too some of the wireless devices and firewall it will not work to allow 2 different subnets to talk even with subnet mask changed.

So you used a dumb wireless to pass on internet with no routing.

Understand DMZ could have done the same. It would not worked in this scenario.
