    Good day all,

    I have a simple routing problem which escapes me.

    I've brought some networked equipment home from work to tinker with & am having problems connecting to this equipment & to my home LAN at the same time.

    I have three devices with static IP's of 10.6.1.50, 10.6.1.51, & 10.6.1.52 which need to be connected together. I'd like to connect to 10.6.1.51 with my laptop.

    I found when I connect my laptop to these devices through the wired lan port (& an ethernet switch I also borrowed) I got disconnected from my home LAN which I connect to via wifi.

    I then tried to bridge my wifi & wired ethernet connections but that didn't work reliably.

    Now I'd like to put all these devices on my home LAN as shown in the attached & set up routing so that my laptop can connect to the device @ 10.6.1.51 through the WRT54G @ 192.168.1.1.

    Could someone explain in plain english how this can be done? I'm running Alchemy-V1.0 v3.37.6.8sv.

    Thanks in advance.

    With all the devices connected to one wired "back-bone" you'll have to look at VLANs. I'm sure some VLAN guru will help you out with that.

    Easiets way may be to change your home net to the 10.6.1.0/24 subnet for a while, and have all devices on one subnet (or change the fixed 10... IPs). Be sure to have your DHCP server (assuming that you use DHCP for your home net) give out addresses that will not overlap with the fixed ones.

    Sigh, changing my home lan to 10.... was my plan A however I found my WRT54G can't work with anything other than 192.168.1.xxx's. Since changing the fixed IP's is not an option I'll explore VLAN. Thanks for a push in the right direction.

    Why do you think that? AFAIK you can set IP to anything you want as long as it makes logical sense. I have one running a 10.x network routing to another one on a 192.x network.

    can it be done absolutely as stated if it makes logical sense to the router, the bigger issue is going to be if your router firmware will support it. All of the routers i own do except the wrv200. I own a sl54gs and it will so i would guess that yours will too. If the option is available to you it should be on the main setup page.

    You don't need vlans to do this, in fact just looking at it quickly it a vlan couldn't possibly help you.
    I know for a fact you can change the IP of a WRT54G to a 10.x.x.x because I am running one at 10.10.32.5.
    The easiest thing to do would to put your laptop on the same subnet as your other devices by setting the linksys to be in the same IP range.
    If you can't or don't want to do that, you can setup static routing however that would complicate things greatly.
    You'd need to add a IP in the new subnet to your wrt via a shell, then add a static route via the shell as well for it to work.
    if you need details on exactly how to do this once you've decided how you want to fix this probelm, let me know.

    Thanks guys. Took another look & found the option to change my router's local ip address right away. Everything is 10.6.1.xxx now & I'm sure everything will be able to connect to everything else. Thanks again.
