    Can't access .2.1 from .0.1>?




    Iíve been trying to get a secondary router to be connected (similar to that described in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XfAFRhijTw&t=1535s) but Iíve hit a little problemÖ.
    My main router is on 192.168.0.1.
    On my new secondary router I was on 192.168.0.199. The diagram may help.
    I then changed the secondary rooter to 192.168.2.1. I can still connect to the internet via the secondary rooter but I canít connect to the secondary router at all? Help please Ė Icanít now get to the connection to the new router???? I;m assumingthat my main router canít allow connectivity on 192.168.2.*?Ahhhhh! Thanks!

    192.168.2.1. is on another subnet so you will have problems. Your main router should have dhcp running and connected via a cable from a lan port to the LAN port on router 2 which will have dhcp disabled and set to 192.168.0.199.

    Many thanks - I think I've got it (and thanks again for your helping!).

    I connected my router 2 directly via an additional Ethernet to my laptop but I still can't connect to 192.164.2.1? Am I missing something (I guess I am!), or is there anyway to directly connect to router 2? Thank you!

    To connect is dhcp turned off? If so you need to set you pc ip to 192.168.2.10 so its on the same subnet

    Thanks.
    I'm confused! I'm still struggling on how I can connect to 192,164.2.1? I've tried 192.165.2.10 - was that right - it doesn't connect?
    Sorry if I feel a tad slow (!) as I had stroke last year and slowly trying to re-learn things again. Thanks for your patience.

    It might help if you try to explain what you're trying to accomplish with this.

    When you say a "second router" do you mean a second internet connection? Are you trying to be able to use both internet connections to double your speed (that generally won't work). What is the point here?

    Hopefully this may help!? (Please see https://www.tenforums.com/attachment...-a-router7.pdf)

    We connect to the secondary router for VPN access. If we don't need to use the VPN then we will connect directly to the main router.
    We had connected to 192.168.0.199, but had understood that we needed to change the secondary router to 192.168.2.1, which now means that I can connect to the internet via the secondary router, but that I can't connect to the secondary router at all? i.e 192.164.2.1 is allowing me to connect to the internet but I can't manage 192.164.2.1?
    Thanks

    I've followed the instructions (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XfAFRhijTw&t=1535s) quite (!) a few times now but I can't understand how I can now connect to 192.164.2.1?
