I have a Wi-Fi router connected to my Wi-Fi modem through a LAN cable. I have designated a static IP address to the router inside the modem configuration.
Therefore the IPs are:
192.168.1.2– external IP address as assigned by modem.
192.168.0.1– internal IP address.
- Both have
DHCP is enabled both on router and modem but with different subnets.
The main PC is connected to my modem and the rest of the home network connected to my router.
The problem is I can't access my router (i.e. configuration window & router's clients) through my main PC, neither by
192.168.1.2 or nor
192.168.0.1 or any router's client address.
I can access my modem's config window from the clients of router, but not the other way around.
The following may help you understand my setup:
To be exact, I am using an ADSL modem but it can be configured to 3 modes:
- ADSL Modem Router Mode.
- 3G Router Mode.
- Wireless Router Mode (which I'm using) – one of the LAN port can be configured to be used as WAN port.
The main task I am trying to accomplish is to access config window of router from modem's clients and share files b/w the main computer connected to the modem and 2nd router's clients i.e. Raspberry Pi, other machines etc.
P.S. I can access/share my files fine in LAN to LAN configuration and disabling DHCP on second router, but still can't access config window of router through any of the clients (whether connected to modem or router). Isn't this using router as a switch?
Please note that I want to share files and access config windows of both modem and router in LAN to WAN configuration.
