we are setting up in a new premises, and our main wireless/DSL Modem can't reach one of the offices. There's a connected Ethernet cable to the room next to it, so I've set up our spare wireless router there.
Primary: Cisco WAG 310G - provided by xnet. Set as 192.168.1.1, Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
- two desktops on LAN,
- phone (via VFX)
- WPA-Personal / TKIP Encryption Wireless on channel 11
Secondary: Asus WL520GC
- WPA2-Personal on Channel 9
we have a fixed IP address from Worldxchange
What I've done (following 2 sets of instructions I found, both for different brand routers!)
- connected secondary via an ethernet port, not WAN port
- set secondary's LAN IP to 192.168.1.2
- set gateway on secondary to 192.168.1.1
- DHCP is enabled on both. Primary limited to 192.168.1.64..127, secondary 128..255
A laptop can connect to the admin panel of the secondary ok. Internet requests give an unable to reach DNS server error.
I tried putting in the xnet DNS server IP's, same result.
I cannot access 192.168.1.1 admin page from a device connected to the secondary, and cannot reach 192.168.1.2 from this computer on the primary.
The cable is known to work - I've run a laptop on it.
Any clues or pointers to more specific help?
All I really want is internet access via thesecondary.
I've no networking training, so please answer in words of one syllable :-)
