Question about ZoomTel V3 Router (55670000)
A router by design is to provide a connection between two different networks -- separate networks with different IP address ranges. If this is a corporate network or someone else's network connection of a router may be undesirable or forbidden by their policies check before proceeding. To add additional devices to a wired network can often be achieved with a switch or a hub instead of a router which is far less complicated. You have indicated there is a DHCP server to supply network addresses on the existing network making the switch or hub approach potentially available. If however you are attempting to connect a router to a single port modem device to your internet service provider this may well be the correct answer. If you are attempting to separate portions of your operations for security reasons this may be part of a reasonable approach.
In general to access the internet you need a unique IP address belonging to the network to which you are attached to operate on that network. The address range of the LAN side of the attached router must be different than else where in the attached network. So the 10.2.2 network assuming a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 must be unique to your router and not used elsewhere for other routers in the rest of your network. In addition you need gateway address and NAT (address translation) services to share the single internet address available to the internet in most home/small business environments from your router through the necessary routers all the way to the internet service provider's access point for your operation. You also need access to DNS servers to resolve textual names like fixya.com to IP addresses to route messages. Without any of the above your connection will not work. Some environments block direct access to the internet and require the use of proxy servers -- this could also be a requirement in your environment -- the configuration to access those can differ by facility and must be answered by the local administrative staff.
I hope the above helps
