PC behind router not added to LAN

By fettesman ·
I am unsure how to get a pc behind a router to show up on my LAN.
I have (for various reasons) 10 static ip's
adsl modem --> 20 port switch
from this switch I have 5 pc's connected directly and two 4 port routers which each have 2 pc's behind them.
the routers use dhcp however the pc's behind have reserved addresses.
I am able to connect via remote desktop having opened a port in the router.
All the pc's are configured to join the same workgroup and the 5 direct connect pc's all show up in the workgroup computers
i can ping the 5 pc's from a pc behind the router

a badly drawn example of part of setup


so top two are showing in workgroup but how do I get bottom two to join?

I hope I have given enough information
I presume I am missing something simple!

Network issue

The last two are on a seperate network. You either need to configure them as part of the same network or bridge the network segments from the router.

bridging not possible

by fettesman In reply to Network issue

i have looked up bridging and msoft say

You must select at least two eligible network connections in order for Bridge Connections to create a bridge.

the subnets are behind the router and have only one network connection.
I think I have discovered that I would need to go down the domain route to achieve objectives as workgroups not supported across different networks

(I may of course have misunderstood about bridging)
Thanks for your help
