Static routing "Advanced Routing" on Linksys WRT55AG
I use a Smoothwall Firewall/Router to create a private
192.168.2.x (255.255.255.0) network.On
this network I have networked printers with static IPs.I have connected a Linksys WRT55AG wireless
router.I would like to make the
printers on the 192.168.2 network available to users on the wireless network.I have tried to use the advanced routing to
set up a static route to the printers.The Linksys local network/wireless network is set up as 192.168.3.x with
the default gateway my Smoothwall firewall.I have tried many permutations of set up a static route to the printers,
none have worked.If you have any explanations
of how to configure the Linksys to route wireless users to my printers please
share them.Thank you Mark Sykora, email@example.com, (262) 784-9612.

Re: Static routing "Advanced Routing" on Linksys WRT55AG
Do your network printers support TCP/IP printing? Are all of the computers on the same subnet? You mentioned wired versus wireless are the wired systems working? The important thing to remember when networking is only to use one DHCP server, I would recommend using the Linksys router as a WAP (Wireless Access Point) rather than a router if you already have a Smoothwall that is working the way you want it to.

I assume you want to connect to the internet through the router. you have to have the router set as a gateway, I think by default it is not. Go to your browser, type http://192.168.1.1, login, click on advanced routing and change from "router" to "gateway". The password by default is "admin".
Please find below is to configure what ever you want.

VPN Wizard - Create a new site-to-site VPN Policy or configure the WAN GroupVPN to accept connections from the SonicWALL Global VPN Client
To isolate the problem beter connect your wireless router directly to the modem and configure it, check if you are able to go online properly so that you can figure out the problem if your wireless router is not working properly, try upgrading the latest firmware and reset the router and reconfigure the router and that will fix your problem...
You must use a router to perform NATing to the ISP. Simply use a Netgear or Linksys router and plug your access point into it. You can even use a Netgear or Linksys wireless router with the ethernet ports built into it. Just disable the onboard wireless.
Connect a computer to linksys lan port 1-4, point browser to linksys http://192.168.1.1 under Setup->Basic Setup->Internet Settings choose "Static IP" and fill in the fields below... the field for gateway should be set to the static ip of your cable modem. the field for netmask should probably be 255.255.255.0. It may help to turn on DHCP for local network so that lan hosts can get their ip's from the linksys.
If you're within a network and try connecting to computers on it with the WAN public IP, it simply won't work - you must use the network IP.
On an external Internet connection, it should connect fine to the public IP. If you have access to an external machine (remote desktop), or if you know of an FTP proxy, you can try it that way.
I also believe http://www.webftp.co.uk/ a web based FTP client would act as somewhat of a proxy, you could try that with the public IP and see how you go.
First you will need to open up your internet browser (Internet Explorer/Netscape) and go to http://192.168.1.1. You will be prompted for a username and password. By default there is no username and the password is admin. Once you arrive at the routers setup page click on the Advanced tab.
Once the page finishes loading, you'll find you will be on the "Filters" tab. Look down and make sure that there are no numbers other than 0 in the boxes on that page. If there are, then you will need to replace them with 0's and click Apply, then Continue.
Once you've done that, you're going to want to look for Dynamic Routing at the top, and then click on it. Once that page finishes loading, make sure that the "Working Mode" is set to Gateway, not ?Router?, and that tx and rx are set to Disable not RIP-1 or RIP-2.
If a static IP address has been set on the computer, verify the gateways matches the Router's LAN IP Address. If there aren't any installed gateways, add the Router's LAN IP Address. When setting static IP Addresses, you must also input the DNS servers. For more information on assigning static IP addresses, please see the related article on assigning static IP addresses.
