Not sure

by mseaman In reply to try...

I have tried removing RIP and setting static route but that did not seem to work. I have also on my test network pc's set the default gateway to the linksys is set up as a gateway and not a router. When I set it up as a route I cant get out to the internet at all on my home network of Thanks for the reply.

WAN Card settings

Can you get out on the internet with Lan A (wireless)?

The way i see it is you have the internal network set up correctly, or at least functioning, I hope. Try multiple trace routes and nail down where you can and can't go on the network.

The ( IP route x.x.x.x - where x.x.x.x would be the next hop onto your ISP's network) is a good suggestion if you are stuck. This tells the router to route all traffic that is supposed to go outside (ex. internet).

Yes I can

by mseaman In reply to WAN Card settings

I can get to the internet on Lan A. On lan B I can not. From Lan B I can ping both interfaces on the Cisco 2600 but can not get to the internet.

Ok I think I understand on the next hop. On the 2600 set the next hop from Lan B to the IPS network. I will try that when I get home.
thanks for the direction/thinking.

a default route. Sorry I didn't explain better what it was. Where he said going to the next hop is called a default route. This has nothing to do with you computer settings. Hope that clears it up.

ip route (insert wan interface here)

edit to add instruction.

Maybe its the linksys

by mseaman In reply to WAN Card settings

I have tried the trace routes and get as far as the .2.1 interface. I also configured the next hop onto the isp's network, still can not route out. I am thinking it is the linksys router, it is setup as a gateway and not a router. When I select router for the configuration in the linksys, then my network can not access the network. I think I should try to elimnate the linksys from this network and see if I am configuring the Cisco 2600 correctly. any ideas on the linksys config that I should use? Either gateway or router. Linksys user guide is not helpful for my senerio.
