Currently I have a Netgear R7000 as my main router, with internet coming from a Moto Surfboard SB6141 Cable Modem. I have a Linksys E3000 running Toastman TomatoUSB connected to the R7000 as a Wireless Client.
R7000 (Main Router)
WAN IP: DCHP from cable modem
LAN IP: 192.168.1.1
DCHP Range: 192.168.1.150 - 192.168.1.199
E3000 (Wireless Client)
WAN IP: 192.168.1.110 (static assignment from R7000)
LAN IP: 192.168.2.1
DHCP Range:: 192.168.2.150 - 192.168.2.199
I also configured a static route on the R7000 to subnet
192.168.2.0 via gateway
192.168.1.110 (E3000 LAN IP).
With this setup the devices on the
192.168.2.0 subnet can access devices on the
192.168.1.0 subnet as well as the internet. However devices on the
192.168.1.0 subnet can't access devices on the
192.168.2.0 subnet (I need this).
I understand that there is double-NATing going on by default so I tried changing the E3000 mode from "Gateway" to "Router" -- this gave me the access between subnets
but devices on the
192.168.2.0 subnet lost internet access.
Is what I want to do possible? What am I doing wrong?
Note: I understand that I can set the secondary router up as a Wireless Ethernet Bridge (with all devices on the same subnet), but I'd like to get this working with the separate subnets if possible -- I don't want to rely on the Wireless connectivity for hard-wired devices to even get an IP address.
