Hi there.

I am trying to connect two different subnets together using a IP rf link but I am unable to get them to communicate.

The IP adresses are:

Network 1: 192.168.22.x
Network 2: 192.168.26.x
RFlink Tx1: 192.168.24.2
RFlink Tx2: 192.168.24.3

Subnet: 255.255.255.0

I am currently using two Netgear FSV318 VPN Firewall/Routers as DHCP servers on the two networks

Are you trying to get two networks to connect over
Wireless?

Kind of

its a directed line of sight RF transmitter link acting as a relay but it uses TCP/IP protocols and they have set IP adresses that I cannot easily change.

I really Have no Idea how to accomplish this.

However, this is how I would approach the issue at hand:

Use Statics IP's for all networks in questions
Configure a Hosts list on the Nodes that need connection
Turn on RIPv2 (not sure this will make a difference but couldn't hurt)



One does have to wonder however, are the RFlinks something you made
yourself?

No, they are used for networking between two buildings some distance away from each other. You can get smaller units to communicate to buildings on the other side of the street and larger ones for some distance away.

In some ways they act like Switches in some ways, except they have their own IP adresses.

If you plug those RFlinks in through the WAN port are you able to ping Hosts on both subnets from
each side of the network? Ping using IP Address.

Also could you put the two Subnets on the same Network as the RFLinks?

I can ping from one of the networks, through its router to the link on the other side. But not through the other router to the other network, or the WAN port on the 2nd router itself for some odd reason.
