Title: problem with subnet for wifi
Post by: tikoti on May 14, 2013, 03:35:52 AM
Hi all,

I am not sure if this is the correct forum, sorry if it is not

I will share my doubt and I hope someone can guide me.

I have subnet 192.168.10.0 in which the regular computers are, apart form this I want all my wifi clients to be in a different subnet.

I have configured my wireless router with the wan address 192.168.10.120 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 and gateway 192.168.10.254 which is another router which correctly routes...

For the lan of the wifi I have given the 192.168.120.1 ip addres with 255.255.255.0 subnet mask and I have enabled DHCP in order to ease the connection.

My problem is that WAN configuration it does not seem to work, it does not display in the status screen of my belkin router (it appears blank), whereas the lan configuration seems ok and I am able to join the wifi (with no internet access obviously)

I have tried to update the firmware without success,

could anyone with me any advice to configure this correctly?

I attach two screenshots

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

What WAN IP does the belkin normally get when it isnt using a static Ip?

It does not get any ip because I don't have dhcp enabled in my network

It has started working now, I did not make nothing special. I have another linksys which worked perfectly with the same configuration

Cheers,

Odd, but at least it is working for you now :-)

Not a big belkin fan, and I liked linksys till ciso bought them, and now cisco is selling linksys to belkin! lol

So far I have had the best luck with netgear, the high models though not their cheap ends.
