Can anyone explain the simplest method of achieving the following?
We have a master LAN on a 10.4.0.x.subnet which connects to the Internet through a Zyxel Prestige wireless router. We have a small office around 40m away with good LOS to the main office and a wireless laptop gets a good signal. It is also on a 10.4.0.x subnet and the mask is 255.255.255.0 in obth cases. We would like to connect the 30 PCs in the smaller office to the main office LAN to access the main fileserver and Internet, and I thought that this could be done wirelessly. Obviously we could put a WLAN card in each PC but as they are already set up on a network I wondered if I could simply connect the smaller LAN to the bigger LAN with an access point or something like that? I've read about bridging but the LANs are on the same subnet - they just can't see each other. At the moment we run a length of CAT5 across the car park on a Sunday afternoon to bring the networks together to perform maintenance on them but this situation is not ideal. Any help appreciated.
