How can I use 1 router when I have 2 routers, each with a separate internet connnection, each with a separate WAN internet IP?
This layout is needed because some hosts on the network would use the 192.168.1.1 as a gateway and others 10.15.168.1 as a gateway. This way each gateway can have its own DHCP server set up and depending on where I plug in on the network i get the correct IPs.
Router A is in a separate apartment as Router C.
Router B is inbetween. I cant use one router, as one apartment needs to access its internet through its router
and the other through the its own router as well.
But i still want to be able to communicate between apartments.
See previous post for more why
Seems to me like my setup is the easies way to achieve this, with both apartments having their own DHCPs and being in separate subnets, but through the router inbetween trafic between apartments would still be possible. Broadcasts need to be filtered out obviously, so the DHCPs dont overlap. If I set the static routing tables as in the 1st post, this should achieve it, but Im still not sure if the Router B will be able to do what I want it to do.Edited by tomaskir - 2/14/11 at 9:43am
