I have a situation as described below :
Router 1 (Dlink DSL-6850u) is used as a VDSL model, and provides wifi to half of the house. It controls subnet 10.0.0.138
Router 2 (TP-Link TD-W9980) is connected via a long LAN cable to the first router. Router 2 was set as 192.168.1.1 and is connected to router 1 via static ip 10.0.0.10
It gives services to the rest of the house through its own DHCP service.
Now all worked perfectly, I had manually configured ports for remote control of my desktop which is connected to router 2 via lan cable, torrents etc all worked.
Until I added a NAS server connected to router 2 via lan cable.
Now when I tried to access the NAS from the first half of the house (router 1) - no route to host! Although clients on router 2 can access the router 1 network!
I tried to do something with IGMP settings, enabling LAN to LAN multicast, etc. Didn't work - clients on Router 1 can't access router 2's subnet.
I also tried the popular advice of disabling DHCP on router 2, but the clients dont get any DHCP response from router 1.
I am running out of ideas, I know that it is possible! Question is how exactly...
Please advise, networking experts.
