Hi I have 2 linksys routers. A BEFVP41 v2 (wired) and a WRT54G (wireless). The Wireless router is connected to the cable modem. Here's my setup.
Wireless Router WAN: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (internet) LAN: 192.168.1.1 / 24 DHCP: off (I am using static IP's) DMZ: 192.168.1.2 (i.e. the wired router)
Wired Router WAN: 192.168.1.2 LAN: 192.168.5.1 / 24 DHCP: off (I am using static IP's).
Port 1 from wireless router connects into WAN port onto wired router.
The problem is that computers on the wired router can see those on the wireless router, but those on the wireless router can't see computers on the wired router
Wired Router --> Wireless Router OK. Wireless Router --> Wired Router Doesn't work.
The catch is that the physical setup (i.e. the port 1 from wireless going to WAN on wired router) must be kept. The reason for this is that the wired router is a VPN router and has some VPN tunnels it must maintain. The DMZ on the wireless router points to the wired router. The Wireless router must be the router connected directly to the internet since I need the QoS it supports for a VoIP phone.
I've tried to setup static routing on the wireless network but that didn't work. Here's the Static routing that I tried. Destination Lan IP: 192.168.5.0 (i.e the wired rotuer's subnet) Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 192.168.1.2 (the wired routers WAN address) Interface: LAN & Wireless
Sorry if this is so confusing, but any help would greatly appreciated. If you have any more questions pertaining to my network setup please ask.
