Question about Linksys WRT55AG Router

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, markrsykora@gmail.com, (262) 784-9612.

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.

Any reason why they're not both on the same subnet?

Cannot connect through router, all light are on , cd installed , antivirus removed , windows firewall off


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".

Private network > VPN > network firewll > priv net


Add a static route on the Sonicwall 2040 : 192.168.1.0/24 with the RV082 as gateway (the ip of the network shared between the RV082 and the Sonicwall)

Another solution is to enable NAT on RV082 for 192.168.1.0/24 network. Routing is preferable.

Internet Intermittent Drop Out


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...

Dose cisco aironet 1100 support routing


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.

Wireless router install on cable modem w/static ip address set


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.

Sonicwall Pro 300 DMZ Problem


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.

Unable to access Internet, WAN IP Address present


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. If you?re still having difficulties, please contact Linksys Product Support.
