Static routing problem
In the study at one end of my house I have fibre broadband and a BT Hub2 router.
My PC is connected to this by CAT5 cable.
At the other end of the house – on a different ring main I have:
Another PC, a smart TV and a printer, interconnected via TP-Link Powerline adaptors.
These don’t work across ring mains because of the RCDs on the breakers.
The gap is bridged by a Wavlink AC1200 WiFi extender into another Powerline adaptor
This all works extreamly well.
The problem is that the Wavlink does NAT translation from 192.168.1.0 to 192.168.10.0, class C.
From the far PC I can ping everything on both subnets
From my PC I can only ping the 1.0 subnet
I have put a static route into my PC:-
route -p add 192.168.10.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.196
where 1.196 is the local static port on the Wavlink
I can now ping 10.1 which is the far port on the wavlink but no other devices on the 10.0 subnet.
Does anyone have any ideas please on how to sort this routing so I can talk to the printer?
