I connected a Netgear WNDR4500 wifi router to my old router. I want all devices connected to the Netgear wifi router to be accessible to all devices connected to my old router.
Yet, the devices on the old router cannot connect to any of the devices connected on the Netgear wifi router.
Even a simple telnet from the old router's LAN fails.
$ telnet 10.0.0.8 80 Trying 10.0.0.8... telnet: connect to address 10.0.0.8: Connection timed out telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out
The relevant subnet masks are
- old router is 192.168.1.0/24
- Netgear wifi router is 10.0.0.0/24
On the old router configuration interface, I
- declared a static IP adress for the Netgear wifi router (e.g., 192.168.1.20)
- added a line in the routing table of the old router, to redirect 10.0.0.0/24 to the Netgear wifi router's IP address (192.168.1.20)
This first part is working correctly, as the ping command output shows.
$ ping 10.0.0.8 PING 10.0.0.8 (10.0.0.8) 56(84) bytes of data. From 192.168.1.1: icmp_seq=1 Redirect Host(New nexthop: 192.168.1.20)
Then, on the Netgear wifi router, I
- activated "Disable Port Scan and DoS Protection"
- activated "Respond to Ping on Internet Port"
- switched "NAT Filtering" from "Secured" to "Open"
Although I was expecting that with such an open, unsecured configuration, I would get both networks to communicate easily, there is still something missing.
Any idea how I can diagnose what is blocking the IP packets?
