So I have 2 routers, a switch, a few PCs and an old PC to become a home server. Right now, I have 1 of the routers connected to the switch which wires every computers. It's working fine.
This is my local network. I want to connect the server to the second router, which is going to be 'parent' of my local network. I am probably missing something here...Anyway, here's my full network configuration:
LOCAL (PARENT) NETWORK
Router 1 (Linksys AC1900):
IP = 192.168.1.1 --- Subnet mask: 255.255.255.192 --- NAT: ON --- DHCP: ON
Home Server ( web server, game server, file sharing, etc.):
IP = 192.168.1.2 --- Subnet mask: 255.255.255.192
Router 2 (Linksys WRT160Nv2):
IP = 192.168.1.65 --- Subnet mask: 255.255.255.192 --- NAT: ON --- DHCP: ON
I had it working once, but the network was really slow so I restarted everything and then every ping gave critical errors. I was unable to connect to any router so I worked my way back to a stable single router network.
I had also set static routes so that the PCs from the local network could ping the server and vice-versa.
