WAN Gateway in Different Subnet than WAN IP - SOLVED Background This has been revised to focus on the real problem, hopefully this will make searching for the solution easier. The Problem My WAN gateway is not on the same subnet as my WAN IP address. My DHCP data looks like: IP Address. . . . .: 126.96.36.199 Subnet Mask . . .: 255.255.254.0 Default Gateway : 188.8.131.52 A Windows laptop works if connected directly to the WAN, but the router does not. When the router is connected if I try and ping anything I get "Destination net unreachable" errors. How can i setup my routing tables to reach a WAN gateway that is not in my subnet? Thanks ahead of time for your help.
