|Here's my setup:|
I have 2 DSL Lines going into a load balancing router. The load balancer is set up to distribute the traffic equally on the two lines, hence doubling the bandwidth. Though great at load balancing, it cannot handle DHCP for the 50+ users on our network, and therefore we are using another router for DHCP, which is running DD-WRT firmware.
DSL 1 - 10.1.0.1
DSL 2 - 10.2.0.1
Load Balancer - external 10.1.0.2, 10.2.0.2 internal 192.168.10.1
DHCP Router - external 192.168.10.2, internal 192.168.1.1
All other devices - 192.168.1.x
The load balancer has many options to direct traffic to one WAN port or the other based on IP address, which we would like to implement. But right now, since all my devices are on the 192.168.1.x subnet, it can't see anything but the DHCP router. So essentially it thinks it has only one client.
What I've tried:
Created a static route on the load balancer with a subnet of 192.168.1.0 and a gateway of 192.168.10.2
Disabled NAT on the DHCP Router
Disabled firewall on the DHCP Router
But something is missing - clients lose connectivity, and the load balancer still cannot see any clients other than 192.168.1.1
How can I set this up so that the Load Balancer (192.168.10.1) can see all the devices on the DHCP subnet (192.168.1.x), while maintaining connectivity?
