Well...first problem is you're going to have big network problems with both sites on the same network/subnet. Based on what you typed above, you will not be able to route packets between the offices since the router won't know which way to go...they must be different networks/subnets...e.g. You have quite a question there...I think you need to have a consultant talk with you over the phone at the minimum. If you can't find one locally you're welcome to work with us. Good luck

How can I make settings to support DHCP IP assignments and also recognize my manual IP's assigned to the LAN connected devices?

The easiest way I can think of is to shrink the DHCP address pool.

To do that, at least on the model of Actiontec router I have, click on "Network (Home/Office)" the go to the "IP Address Distribution" section of the screen. "DHCP Server" should already be selected, and under that, you'll find "Start IP addresses" and "End IP addresses." Usually, the start will be and the end will be What I usually do is change the start address to That leaves over 50 addresses for normal wireless connections, and I'll general assign IP addresses from the rest of the range as follows: to routers, APs, etc. to printers to for other static devices. (I often find that Blu-Ray players, cable boxes, etc. behave better if they have a static address.)

But really, on home network, I doubt you'll have more than 15 devices that need static addresses, so you could set the DHCP start address as low as if you wanted to.

Virtual Server / Port Forwarding does not work from within the Local Network

When you use port forwarding in Virtual Servers and try to test it from within the local network, it may fail. When for example, port 80 is forwarded to a web server in the local network, you may get the router's home page instead of the web server's one or you may get nothing at all. When you try to use the server from outside the local network it will work fine though.

This can happen when you try to access the router's WAN IP address from within the local network. In order for port forwarding to work from within the local network, the router needs to support a feature called NAT loopback. This is not a part of the specification of Belkin routers and modem-routers, so most of them will not have the feature, and if a router does have it, it is not supported.

In order to use the server from within the LAN, you can address it by its internal LAN IP address (e.g.

If the WAN IP address has a DNS host name associated with it, such as, and you need to use that name to connect to the server, you can do so by associating the name to the local IP address in the hosts file (a file called hosts with no extension). This file lists IP addresses and host names and is used before actual DNS lookups are done. You can add lines to the hosts file using a text editor like Notepad on Windows. The lines look like: # comment

The lines contain an IP address and one or more host names separated by white space. Anything that follows a hash sign is a comment and will be ignored. You will need to change the hosts file on all machines in the LAN that need access to the server.

On Windows, the hosts file can be found in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7, in C:\WinNT\System32\Drivers\Etc on Windows 2000, and in C:\Windows on Windows 98 and ME. You need to have administrator rights to edit the file; on Windows Vista and Windows 7 you need to run Notepad as administrator.

After you change the IP address of your Router, you have to reset your Network Card IP address if it is Dynamic. If your IP address is Static you need to manually make these changes from within Windows. Else, reset your computer and try accessing the newly issued IP address for your Router.

Close all Browser Windows and Programs before continuing.
From the Command Prompt, type:

C:\> ipconfig /release

Press Enter, and then type:

C:\> ipconfig /renew

Now try and access the New Router IP.

How do i hook up my router?

There are several ways to do this, depending on how your network is configured.

Generally, if you have only one router - you connect the network jack of your cable modem or DSL modem to the WAN ("wide area network" or "internet") jack of the router with a CAT 5 network cable or jumper. Each computer's network jack would be connected to one of the router's (4) LAN ("local area network" or "home network") jacks labeled 1, 2, 3, & 4.

In the picture above, the left most jack (WAN) of the router connects to the cable or DSL modem. The "LAN" jacks labeled "1, 2, 3 & 4" connect to each computer's network jack in your home.

The above would change if you are simply adding this router to extend an existing network. You'd likely be using this router as a switch, and leaving the routing duties to the main router. Over simplified, all the CAT 5 network cables would be connected to the 4 LAN jacks. There would be no connection to the router's WAN jack because the output of the first router provides only private IP addresses used in YOUR location. The internet IP address from your ISP is used only at the first router so that your entire home has the single IP address. The WAN jack is for internet addresses only - and the LAN jacks are for local / private addresses in your home only.

Have a look at the LinkSys web site for help configuring your particular model router, or reply with the model and version here.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

In the rules, you will need to create a new rule that allows your VPN subnets access to you office LAN, and then on your office network gateway, add a route for your VPN subnet pointing back to your checkpoint firewall.

What is the role of router in wan technology?

Hope u must be aware of network packets. Each network have its unique network address through which the computer within the network communicate. If a computer with different network address want to communicate with such an environment the packet need to be routed within the 02 different network, which is done through a device called router.

Router is a network device which route's packet between different networks..
An electronic device that connects a local area network (LAN) to a wide area network (WAN) and handles the task of routing messages between the two networks.

This example will demonstrate how to create a Virtual private Network (VPN) between two remote locations through the Internet. The VPN policy will use 3DES IPSec to securely send/receive encrypted data over the Internet. When the VPN tunnel is enabled, the two offices will virtually appear to be on the same local network. This example will consist of two DI-804V VPN Routers with a simple setup. The two remote offices in this example will be known as Office A and Office B. Both VPN Routers must already be set up and able to access each other. This is only an example, your setup will vary using the WAN IP address provided by your ISP. Please note the differences in the IP addresses for each office. We will begin by configuring the DI-804V at Office A. Start by going into VPN Settings under the Basic Setup menu. Step 1. In the Connection Name field, type in OfficeA. Click ADD. Step 2. A properties screen will appear for the new connection you have made. Fill in the appropriate information for Office A: Connection Name: OfficeA Local IPSEC Identifier: Local Remote IPSEC Identifier: Remote Remote IP Network: Remote IP Netmask: Remote Gateway IP: Network Interface: WAN ETHERNET Secure Association: IKE Perfect Forward Secure: Enabled PreShared Key: 123456 Key Life: 28800 IKE Life Time: 3600 Step 3 Click SAVE. There should now be a VPN policy created for Office A. Now you will want to Save & Restart the DI-804V. Note: 123456 is an example of a preshared key, please fill in any secret preshared key you desire. Keep in mind that both sites require the same preshared key. Office A setup is now complete, we will now configure Office B with the other DI-804V, Follow the same steps previously with Ofice A to create a VPN policy. Step 1 Please change the appropriate information. Connection Name: OfficeB Local IPSEC Identifier: Local Remote IPSEC Identifier: Remote Remote IP Network: Remote IP Netmask: Remote Gateway IP: Network Interface: WAN ETHERNET Secure Association: IKE Perfect Forward Secure: Enabled PreShared Key: 123456 Key Life: 28800 IKE Life Time: 3600 Step 2 Click SAVE. There should now be a VPN policy created for Office B. Now you will want to Save & Restart the DI-804V. After the VPN policies have been created for the two Offices, the two remote locations should authenticate and connect. To view the status of the VPN connection, go to the Device Status menu. On the bottom-left side of the menu, click on the VPN Status icon. A VPN Status pop-up screen will appear showing VPN connection status. If a VPN tunnel is active, the State should indicate Q-Estab. Go to a DOS prompt and ping the internal IP address of the remote network.
