Ok, So first things first: I know what a subnetmask is, and what it is used for. But I have no idea how to properly set it
Above is my home network, I have my dhcp server set to the router (
192.168.0.1) for all parties involved (Nas, laptop, desktop), and they can all see
192.168.0.1, but they cannot see each other.
What I wish to accomplish is that the laptop can see the NAS, which it at the moment cannot. Because all the IPS on the wireless router get an ip in the
192.168.1.* range, and without the proper subnet they cannot see the ones on the
192.168.0.* range (except the dhcp server apparently)
I cannot set the subnet mask according to what I want:
255.255.252.0 to get the appropriate level of access to different subnets. Do I need some kind of setting to set the wireless router and modem to a class B network?
Is this not something normal networking equipment can handle?
