I have 3 D-Link and 2 Cisco configured via Linksys Router. To enable us tracking problems we have given names to SSID (ie. Block-A, Block-B, etc) two of them have DHCP enabled with range of IPs to broadcast. Now another Modem/Router is needed on the LAN; how do we configure this in the range of IP?
The first Router runs ie (126.96.36.199)
and some AP (188.8.131.52 as starting DHCP)
I want to give the 2nd Router (184.108.40.206) with its DHCP Enabled; could it be possible to have access to some of the printers on the first Router LAN?
Thanks for your question Luxi.
Is this network connected to the Internet?
I ask because the IP's you posted are public IP addresses and should not be used on a private network if there is Internet access. It can cause problems if someone on the network requests a website that has the same IP as a local computer.
The ranges for use in private networks should be limited to either a Class A, B or C network.
Class A = 10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255
Class B = 172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255
Class C = 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255
In most cases, depending on the size of the network, you would be best to use a single DHCP Server with properly placed Access Points for the necessary wireless access. If you use Routers, you can be limiting access between the isolated networks.
