  • routing issues

    Morning, I have a four box network at home; my DSL connection and router are in the basement. I have run cable up-stairs to a Linksys
    802.11b, four port access point. I seem to have some routing issues. The router in the basement is 192.168.254.254 and my access point is 192.168.1.1, what would be the best way to get the routers to talk? I have all machines set to obtain IP address automatically.
    All machines run either 2000 Pro or XP Pro.

    Thanks

    i asume
    192.168.1.0 range
    255.255.255.0 as subnet

    both are in the same subnet...

    doesnt see any issues..
    why..?
    won't this configuration work then?

        With 255.255.255.0 subnet mask, only the last octet counts, so

        192.168.1.xxx is on a different subnet to 192.168.254.xxx

        Make sure the first three octets are the same or change the subnet mask to 255.255.0.0 on all the equipment

            Try adding a static route to your linksys in the basement. By doing so you are adding an entry into your routers "routing table" therefor routing all ip packets to the appropriate network.

              Netbios uses broadcasts to annouce to the master browser when a machine leaves or joins a network. If the browser doesn't know a machine is there you won't see it in My Network Places. As Ossian mentioned changing the netmask will allow the machines to be in the same broadcast domain and therefore allow the master browser to receive broadcasts from the other subnet.

              Also adding a static route to the router won't forward broadcasts unless the router is broadcast compliant. I believe that is RFC 1716 (IPv2) & 1812 (IPv4)
