I'm currently facing a small problem regarding a new network setup. I have a few desktop PC's and Ethernet printers that all need to be connected via an Ethernet network.
I have 2 routers in the office currently, Router 1 has the ADSL modem built and no wireless and Router 2 is mainly for the wireless connections but there are wired devices connected.
My problem now starts with this: I have a desktop PC plugged into Router 1 along with 2 Laptops via Ethernet with the IP addresses being 192.168.1. and the final Ethernet port connects to the WAN port on the back of Router 2. I have a windows server 2008 R2 plugged into a Router 2 with the IP address of 192.168.2. using 2 of the routers Ethernet ports and 2 printers in the other 2 Ethernet ports.
I'm currently on the server trying to see the other computer on the network but I can only see computers on the 192.168.2. network. The same goes for the desktop PC's - I can only see computers on the 192.168.1. network. If I change the setup of one router to match the 192.168.2 network, but start the IP range at 100 so its 192.168.2.100 would this fix this problem? Or is there something else I could try without having to change IP address's about?
