I'm not super keen on the fancy networking terminology to describe my situation, so please help me out with that as I describe my problem in the best terms I can.
Currently, we have a network living on the
10.0.0.0/24 subnet. We just purchased an embedded device that, apparently, has its IP flashed onto it by the manufacturer ( or at least that's how the tech who installed it described it ), and its IP address is
While I'm fully confident there's a semi-nice way to change the IP on this embedded device so that it can live on the same network as our other computers, is there a way I can just get the router to route traffic to this device and achieve the same goal? Currently the network and device are literally on the other side of the planet from me, so performing as few steps possible to get this working would be great.
If this matters, I have a SW24 router from SYSWAN.
UPDATE: I should probably mention an additional constraint: I can't change the IP address of the router so that it lives on the
192.168.1.0/24 network. Or at least, I don't think I can, previously it has caused problems. The two modems both all ready have the IP address of
192.168.1.1, and the SW24 is Load Balancing our Internet between them. Previously when I've tried to give the router an address of
192.168.1.254, it seemed to cause problems with our Internet.
Clarification: With regard to how the router should handle the traffic: I want the
192.168.1.200 host to work as though it were just another device on the
10.0.0.0/24 network. That is, from my
10.0.0.100 device, I should be able to
ping 192.168.1.200 successfully, and vice versa.
Update: Here's a picture of how the network is sort-of laid out right now. The two clouds are the two modems, the
10.0.0.1 is the SYSWAN router's private IP address. I'd like for both of the
10.0.0.101 devices (actually there are a few more on the network, as well, but this is for simplicity of the picture) to be able to communicate with the
192.168.1.200 device. It seems like this is a job for static routes, but that's where I get confused. What kind of static route do I need to add to my router?
