Static Routing on Netgear R6220

Static Routing on Netgear R6220

I need to connect LAN A to LAN B with static routing.
Router 192.168.A.1 should be able to send packets to router 192.168.B.1, even though each has its own ISP.
I should be able to use the following static route on the A router, or on any PC connected to it.
route -p add 192.168.B.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.A.1 metric 3

 

Instead, nothing on network B pings from network A. Is this because the routing table has not yet been propagated through the system? Or do I have the routers in the wrong places in the command that adds the route to the routing table?

 

Thanks.

I fear that this will not work. From earlier discussions here, it seems that you can't join two networks with different WAN IP addresses. They are two separate networks.

 

You probably need some other way to "tunnel". I would suggest ReadyCLOUD, but his is on its way out. and may not do what you want.

 

Perhaps you could explain what it is you want to do on this connection so that someone more knowledgeable can advise.

You  might be able to do something like that with business class gear but not with base model consumer gear. 

 

Like @michaelkenward says, a better idea of why you're trying to accomplish that might help better so we can see if there's work arounds or better ways of doing it.

That is the answer I expected.  I will look into ReadyCLOUD and its replacements to see whether there may be other answers.

Don't get hooked on ReadyCLOUD. It is on its way out.

 

Over time, Netgear has removed various features, usually on the grounds of security.

 

You may have to find some sort of third party option.

 

I do not know what you want to do, but cloud storage is a good way of sharing data.
