Can't see some coupters on network.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So I'm trying to set up a network to share files between the computers in my house.

Two computers are hooked up straight to the modem (DHCP enabled). The remaining three are connected to a netgear router (white) which is operating as a switch with DHCP disabled.

I set all the computers to the same workgroup (MSHOME) and file sharing is enabled on all computers. They all run Windows 7.

The two highlighted computers cannot see each other.

The top two computers can see eachother.

It seems that the white router is the dividing line between two sub networks.

Please help.

You're implementing double NAT by using the WAN port and another subnet on the white router.

If you:
  • Assign Router #2 an IP such as 192.168.0.2
  • Turn off DHCP on router 2
  • Connect routers together using LAN ports

You should be able to use all devices on the same subnet, and will be able to see the devices connected within router 2 from router 1.

Ok. So I tried setting the ip of the white router to 192.168.0.2 and I couldn't connect to the internet.

So modem ip is : 192.168.0.1
White router ip is: 192.168.0.2

What do I set my network settings on the computers connected to the white router?

ip address: 192.168.0.X
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
default gateway: 192.168.?.?

primary dns: 192.168.?.?

secondary dns:

I also tried setting the white router to: 192.168.0.12

with that I tried the following settings:

One of the bottom computers:

ip address: 192.168.0.5
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
default gateway: 192.168.0.1

primary dns: 192.168.0.1
secondary dns:

primary dns: you can leave blank i believe (0.0.0.0).

Also remember to move the Ethernet cable from WAN to LAN port on the white router.

Ok. So I did that, and for some reason only skype is working internet-wise.

Firefox is still acting like there is no internet connection.

It seems to be the same on all the computers under the white router.

Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
DNS : 8.8.8.8

Also, you should not have to manually set them on the white router, as they will pull DHCP information from the WAN facing router.

Make sure your DHCP range on router 1 starts outside of your statically assigned devices (router1 and 2).

I meant to put these on your white router

gateway: 192.168.0.1
dns: 0.0.0.0 (or leave blank because it will get the DNS ip address on the modem router)

Now for the computers connected to the white router:

Just leave them the way they are. It is not necessary to set static IP addresses. They will get IP addresses from the modem router via DHCP. The white router will act like a switch instead of a router.
