    Hello, I am unable to access the admin interface by its IP when I am on a different subnet.

    My environment is as such:

    | My PC
    Cisco router
    | WRT54GL (
    | another WRT54GL (

    So physically, I've been plugging in ethernet cables into one of the switch ports on the WRT54GL. However, my understanding is that those are not routable interfaces or something to that extent, thus I cannot access the WRT54GL's interface when I'm a different network (ie - Is there any way around this?

    I unfortunately cannot create separate subnets with each WRT54GL, since I have several... they all need to be in one subnet. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Can you ping or 3 - i.e. is your Cisco routing, and if it is, is it not blocking http requests to

    If you cannot ping the 10.x.x.x subnet, and you Cisco is routing, it may mean that your WRTs don't know how to route back, i.e. how to route from 10.x.x.x to 172.x.x.x. Add a manual route on your WRTs.
