    Would it be possible to link, or connect my local network to a wan network? The neighbourhood where i live has built i fiber lan network, and it´s connected to the Internet through a fiber nod. In my house i use a local network with IP 192.168..., and the neighbourhood network uses 81.8... the IPS uses static IP also beginning with 81.8 When i connect the neighbourhood network directly to the PC i can see my neighbours on My network, but running through the router i can only see my local house network. Is there a way to connect these two network so I can see both networks in the PC??

    I think it all depends on if you can setup static routes between the subnets... I'm not sure if this can be done from the router your running.. otherwise the immediate answer would be no, seperate networks with different subnets (because of the classes) will not talk to each other...

    Hope it helps..

    Most home routers act as residential gateways rather than as traditional routers. Linksys routers are configurable as either, but even switching it over to be a router may not fix your problem. The network your using for your local LAN is reserved for private use which the other routers may not like, depending on how they're configured.
