i'm not IT guy. i'm just trying to setup simple LAN in my house and got stuck with this problem. I just want to access my server (192.168.2.10) from my laptop (192.168.1.104)
So, here's the case : in 1st floor, i have a wireless router which is connected to my ISP (internet). This is my 1st router.
LAN IP : 192.168.1.1 subnet : 255.255.255.0
I have couple of devices connected to this router :
192.168.1.10 (2nd router on 2nd floor via ethernet) 192.168.1.101 (phone via wireless) 192.168.1.106 (phone via wireless) 192.168.1.104 (my laptop via wireless) <--where i tried to access the server from.
From all those devices, i can access internet without problem.
2nd ROUTER setup :
WAN IP : 192.168.1.10 LAN IP: 192.168.2.1 /255.255.255.0
Also on 2nd floor i have couple of Devices and assigned IP :
192.168.2.10 (server) <-- the server i tried to reach from my laptop 192.168.2.101 192.168.2.103
So far, the setup works fine. I can ping from any computer on 2nd floor to any IP on 1st floor with no problem. I can browse internet from any devices on 2nd floor with no problem. But i have 1 probem : I can't ping from my laptop (192.168.1.104) to the 2nd router : ping 192.168.1.10 always give me request timeout. In fact , i can ping this 2nd router from any devices on 2nd floor (from any 192.168.2.x)
Can anyone help me to solve this problem ? Pls ask me if i'm not clear enough to explain the problem. My goal is to have access from 1st floor to the server (192.168.2.10) which have to go through 192.168.1.10/192.168.2.1 (2nd router). But i can't connect to the server because i can't even ping that 2nd router.
What is the possible reason that i can't ping 1.10 ?
