for adding a WAP for internet only? I dont want this WAP to giver access to anything except my router going out.
I would like it to disk out its own DHCP in a completely different network but still give the users Internet access
Is there a whitepaper or howto>/??
If you knew enough to get the network setup like it is already then you ought to know how to do this. If not, call (and pay) the people that set it up. Get this wrong and you run the risk of compromising the network security quite badly.
Nice attitude. We come here for help, not to hear that we should
already know how or to go hire someone. Grrrr!!!
I have the same problem. Westell 327w dsl modem on home network.
I'd like a separate unsecured network with internet access, but no
access to the primary network. I need 20 foot range. I have several
consumer-grade access points and routers. Can't figure how to set it up.
No, I don't want a lecture that I shouldn't. I want a tutorial on HOW.
You might look at some of the info on <http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/content/view/86/106/>
But what Bill is alluding too, is that if you are responsible for the network security you need to know how risk adverse you or your business is and make appropriate decisions.
If you can get a second ip address from your internet provider just set up a separate network.
If you can't get a second ip then connect one router to your isp and then connect wan ports of two additional routers to lan side of ISP connected router.
There are some issues with double natting so you mileage may vary.
A different option would be to find a router with 1 wan port and the ability to route between two diffrent internal networks
If you want to run two wireless networks in same proximity choose your channels properly.
needle in that haystack.
I'm not overly concerned about highest security. Ain't nothing worth
having on the machine. Just like to try to keep out the pranksters
who like to trash your system. Spending money on the project is outa
Two issues I forgot to mention...
1) the router I want open is built into the dsl modem.
I want the high speed router to be the secure one.
2) I need to port forward to the net on the secondary router
for voip, vnc, etc.
I got the thing to work with two different nets...192.168.1.x and 192.168.2.x
but couldn't figure out how to port forward to the second router. I tried subnetting one
address range with subnet mask and assigning two dhcp servers, one for each half.
All that did was take the other half of the last octet
out of the list. Could still access the other half.
Sounds like the setup needs some thoughtful planning, I would reccommend starting by making a list of hardware making sure you include manufacturer, and software verson numbers then you might be able to get more specific answers
