I have the following configuration: my laptop connected to router #1 (ASUS RT-N66U, let call him R1) using wireless connection. Laptop's IPv4 address is
192.168.1.143 (DHCP allocated) (LAN options on R1: addresses: 192.168.1.1-192.168.1.254, mask: 255.255.255.0). My router #2 (ASUS RT-N10U, let call him R2) connected to R1 using wired connection. R2 LAN settings is: addresses: 192.168.2.1-192.168.2.254, mask: 255.255.255.0. My device (let call him D1) connected to R2 using wired connection and has IPv4 address 192.168.2.20. Lets try to draw the picture:
D1 192.168.2.20 (static) | | 192.168.2.x subnet laptop 192.168.1.143 (DHCP) R2------------------ | 192.168.1.x subnet | | | --------------R1--------------
I want to be able to access my laptop from D1 and vice versa (access D1 from my laptop), so for example D1 can connect to the web server running on the laptop. I'm not the guru in the network architecture, so I can figure out why I can't access my laptop from
192.168.2.x subnet (and can't access D1 from my laptop) and how can I achieve this.
Basically I need my laptop to be in one subnet (e.g. 192.168.1.x) and my device D1 be in other subnet (e.g. 192.168.2.x) so that D1 can access my laptop's web server.
Thanks in advance.
