How to Enter Fake Static Route?

    Hi. I have a Linksys E2000 setup as a router on my production network. The WAN Interface of the E2000 is a static IP from my production network. The LAN IP is a different subnet as shown below:

    My Production Network is 192.168.0.X
    My E2000 WAN IP is (Static)
    My E2000 LAN IP is, DHCP enabled for -
    Wireless is enabled

    I want to let people get on the wireless network in order to get on the Internet. However, I DO NOT want them trying to access anything on my production network (SQL, file servers, intranet, etc).

    On a Netgear WiFi Router that I had kicking around, I was able to do the exact same config as above, INCLUDING adding a Fake Static Route as follows:

    Network: 192.168.0.X
    Interface: LAN & Wireless

    * The .254 is a fake gateway which causes all traffic destined for the 192.168.0.X network to go nowhere. Yet, somehow, the Internet traffic continues to work fine. I love this setup because it keeps my production network isolated from the E2000 LAN sitting behind it.

    When I try this on the E2000, I keep getting "Invalid Static Route!". I'm on the latest firmware

    Any thoughts on how I can accomplish the above?
