I have a large network setup with 2 computers connected wi-fi through 802.11a, two printers, an IP camera, and a forwarding serial port
connected through 802.11g, and 3 NAS drives connected directly to the Engenius wireless router.
It's working perfectly and I'd like to keep it the way it is.
I recently Ebay-purchased a video server to play with, but Wireshark says that it is set to address 10.1.37.22.
If I disconnect my XP machine from its wireless USB adapter, configure the unused Ethernet2 connector on the back for static 10.1.37.2 with
a gateway of 10.1.37.1 and reboot the XP machine, ZENMAP confirms the 10.1.37.22 IP address and says the following ports are open:
tcp 7 echo
tcp 13 daytime
tcp 21 ftp
tcp 23 telnet
tcp 37 time
I then reconfigured the unused ethernet2 connector back to DHCP, ,disconnected the ethernet cable from the video server, rebooted the computer,
and reconnected the USB wifi adapter.
Everything is back to normal.
I have several D-Link, Linksys, and Netgear routers that I upgraded from sitting around.
What I'd like to do is use one of them to allow me to play with my new toy at 10.1.37.22, but be able to connect to it through my established 192.168.0.1 network.
I'd like some advice.
Do I configure the old router for a base address and gateway of 10.1.37.1 and plug the video server into a LAN port and the WAN port on the old
router into a LAN port on my 192.168.0.1 router?
Or do I plug the WAN port on my 192.168.0.1 router into a LAN port on the old router along with the video server and then the WAN port on my
old router into my DSL modem?
An added aggravation if I remember correctly, D-Link routers have the 192.168 address:blocks hardwired in.
Any suggestions appreciated.
