In my home, I have a modem connected to the Internet, and I have a wireless router connected to the modem.
It was working fine. I took some notes a while back when I first got it configured, but I am not sure if these were the latest settings.
IP Address: 192.168.2.254 / 255.255.255.0 DHCP Range: 192.168.2.1 - 192.168.2.5
LAN IP Add: 192.168.0.1 / 255.255.255.0 WAN IP Add: 192.168.2.1 / 255.255.255.0 Gateway: 192.168.2.254 Prim. DNS: 192.168.2.254 DHCP Range: 192.168.0.100 - 192.168.0.199
Now for the change:
I bought a new NAS (network storage). I plugged it in, but it did not show up.
Using the NAS software, I was able to see that it is configured for a specific network:
IP Add: 192.168.1.5
The IP Address of the NAS can be changed by browsing to the NAS on the network, but I cannot reach it. I'm not really sure how the NAS software was able to see it across the domain name, but it did. That is not the point.
I can only access items that use the Router's DHCP Range (currently
192.168.0.100 - 192.168.0.199).
I tried making changes to my network to accommodate it, but now I cannot get from my LAN out to the Internet.
I took a number of router classes 10+ years ago, but I never used it and the books and notes from those classes are long gone.
How would I modify my Modem's and Router's network settings so that the NAS IP Address
192.168.1.5 falls in the Router's DHCP Range?
If I get a nice, complete answer, I can print that out and keep it with my modem and router in my little network closet.
