Setting up an RV016 (firmware 2.0.6) with a static route

    I'm having a problem with my RV016 I'm hoping someone can help with (linksys support certainly hasn't been much help). I'm just going to get right to an illustration of our setup which
    describes things much better than I can write it.

    We have the following setup:

    Internet
    |
    |
    207.114.171.178 - WAN 1 static IP
    RV016
    LAN:192.168.1.1 subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
    |
    |
    Linksys Switch (we have PC's on the 192.168.1.0 subnet here)
    |
    |
    192.168.1.5
    Router A
    10.1.1.2 - this address is bound to a T-1 interface
    |
    | (This link is a point to point T-1 to another site)
    |
    10.1.1.1 - this address is bound to a T-1 interface
    Router B
    192.168.2.5
    |
    |
    Switch (we have PC's on the 192.168.2.0 subnet here)


    OK, so router A has a default route (IP: 0.0.0.0, subnet mask: 0.0.0.0) to 192.168.1.1 (the RV016) and a static route for the 192.168.2.0 subnet to 10.1.1.1. All PC's on the 192.168.1.0 network have their gateway set to 192.168.1.5. Internet access works from all of these PC's due to the default route and due to the 192.168.2.0 static route they can communicate just fine with PC's on the 192.168.2.0 network.

    Router B has a default route (IP: 0.0.0.0, subnet mask: 0.0.0.0) to 10.1.1.2. Due to this PC's on the 192.168.2.0 network can successfully communicate with all devices on the 192.168.1.0 network except for the RV016. All PC's on the 192.168.2.0 network have their gateway set to 192.168.2.5.

    The 192.168.2.0 network can't communicate with the RV016 of course because you can't set a gateway address for the RV016 therefore traffic is not getting routed back over the T-1 link to the 192.168.2.0 network. A static route is needed to fix this. So a static route was added to the RV016 with an IP of 192.168.2.0, a subnet of 255.255.255.0, a gateway of 192.168.1.5 and a metric of 2. By adding this we can now communicate with the RV016 from the 192.168.2.0 network, but for some reason we can't access the internet from the 192.168.2.0 network. We can ping 192.168.1.1 and get to the web interface of the RV016 from the 192.168.2.0 network. We can even ping the public static IP of the WAN interface on the RV016 from the 192.168.2.0 network, but we cannot get any further than this.

    What must we do to allow internet bound traffic to go out from the
    192.168.2.0 network through the RV016?

    BTW, the 192.168.1.0 network has about 8 PC's on it and the 192.168.2.0 network has about 10 PC's on it.

    We have made this work with another low cost router (a Hotbrick LB-2 which is a $200 router), and the setup was IDENTICAL (actually we just replaced the hotbrick with the RV016 due to extra features of the RV016 we need) and it worked perfectly. Now though we are left without internet access for our whole 192.168.2.0 subnet.

    Please help us get this working.

    Thank you,

    OLIVER

    I have a similar setup and have the same problem.

    Their is comunication between networks but only one network ans access to the internet.

    Has anyone any idea what is wrong?


    BTW: Firewall is off.
