AC2600 DHCP management 2

Hi

 

I comeback with another question. I have a network with 2 router(AC2600) and some acces point(AC2600) (see pict.). I can manage all of my AP and router 1 from my laptop (control) , but i can't have control on the router 2 to manage it. What can i do to have contact with the router 2 and manage it ?

Can't see the picture yet - all in-line photos are set for mandatory moderation. However, two NAT routers are always a bad idea if you intend to have a single flat manageable network.

You know that it is not dodgy, but Netgear's software needs telling. A moderator has to step in and approve the picture. Add it as an attachment rather than an embedded image.

 

I assume that these really are AC2600 routers, and not one of the other Netgear models with the same wifi tag. For example, the R7800 is also AC2600. Netgear does this just to confuse us all.

 

As @schumaku says, slapping two routers together on your network is a great way to ruin your life.

 

To answer your question:

 

What can i do to have contact with the router 2 and manage it ?

 

Put one into access point mode.

Just another user.

My network DM200 -> R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> Orbi RBR40 -> Orbi RBS50Y -> RBS40V

   Why?    Why more than one router?

 

   What's the unlabeled box in your picture between "Router 1" and
"Router 2"?  (A network hub/switch?)

 

> [...] i can't have control on the router 2 to manage it. [...]

 

   "can't" is not a useful problem description.  It does not say what
you did.  It does not say what happened when you did it.  As usual,
showing actual actions with their actual results (error messages, LED
indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague descriptions or
interpretations.

 

   Look at an Attached Devices report on "Router 1".  Do you see "Router
2" there?  What is its (WAN/Internet) IP address?  Have you tried
pointing your web browser (on a system on the "192.168.0.*" subnet) at
that address?

 

   Note that from the WAN/Internet side of "Router 2", "Router 2" would
see this as Remote Management, so you'd need to enable Remote Management
on "Router 2" (and, probably, use a different URL to access it).

 

 

> Put one into access point mode.

 

   Knowing which one would be nice.

 

   Configuring "Router 2" as a (yet another) WAP would be the easy
solution.

 

   If you have some _good_ reason for having multiple routers, then it
would be possible to add a static route on "Router 1", which should
allow devices on the "192.168.0.*" subnet to talk to devices on the
"192.168.10.*" subnet.  See, for example:

Re: AC2600 DHCP management 2

On Router2, turn on remote management, and there will be an https://192.168.0.XX exposed for you to connect/manage it.

 

TIP: On Router 1, reserve the ip address router 2 gets so that XX is fixed.

Re: AC2600 DHCP management 2

Hi.

 

Thanks for your answer, but i have found a good solution for my problem.

It was 2 routeurs because the printer with the router 2 was configured by the Ricoh technician on the IP 192.168.10.100, and i don't have ability to change it.

And that printer must work with the computers in the net of router 2

But now i have placed the router 1 on IP 192.168.10.1 and the router 2 in AP mode, and now everybody can see the printer but only the accredited user (with a code pin) can print from the net.

And now, with a software like Slitheris Network discovery (https://www.komodolabs.com/network-scanner-news/), i can see all of my network, and connect to the GUI of each AP and printer, from the computer "control".

 

Thanks a lot Smiley Wink
