Cisco RV042G Router - Connect Network to 2 LAN and internet
Posted on 2014-04-28
I have a Cisco RV042G router. I am trying to connect a LAN1 to another LAN2 with the router, there is an public PTP fiber connecting the LANs . LAN1 has internet and devices which are needed on LAN2. I would like to keep the LAN2 separate but have it be able to ping and use the devices on LAN1. I have the two LAN connected through the router using a static IP address and the LAN1 internet gateway. I have internet on LAN2.
The trouble is LAN2 cannot ping or utilze the devices on LAN1. Is there settings I need to set. For example LAN2 is 172.16.19.x - LAN1 is 172.16.1.x I tried to use firewall rules to allow IP 172.16.1.x traffic both on LAN and WAN but doesn't seem to work? Unless I am entering it incorrectly.
I need to have LAN2 access LAN1 IP addresses.
