My printer is behind a router (192.168.15), which is connected to another router (192.168.1). In order for me to see the printer from the 192.168.1 router, I need to disable DHCP functionality of the 192.168.15 one. However, when I do so, nothing is able to connect to that router.
I read the manual, and it says "If you disable DHCP, remember to assign a static IP address to the Router" (P.22). So I went to the 192.168.1 router, and assigned a static IP address to the 192.168.15 router. Still same result.
Then I clicked "More info" near to the "DHCP Server" option on the setup page. It said
Enable the DHCP server if you want the router to automatically set the IP address for each computer. Select Disable to manually assign an IP address to each computer connected to the Router.
Now I want the printer to show up on the second router, not on this one. What am I missing? Am I supposed to assign a static IP address to the printer on the 192.168.1 router? Am I supposed to assign a static 192.168.1 address to the printer on the 192.168.15 router?
Model of my router: Linksys RTP-300
