2 different ip address range on one network

January 13, 2011 at 10:14:30
Specs: Windows 7, iCore 7 / 4GB
Hi,

I have a Buffalo NAS with IP address 192.168.1.30 linked to my router, which has IP address 192.168.2.1. Both have the same subnet mask: 255.255.255.0.

DHCP on the router assigns IP's to my computers on the network (192.168.1.xxx). How do I access my NAS?

Thanks

The simple solution is to give the NAS an IP in the same subnet as your network. Which is to say, something like: 192.168.1.30

Is it possible when whomever configured it did so they typo'd and accidentally hit a 2 when they meant to hit the 1 instead?

You should have created a new thread for this question.

The quick and easy way to do this is to statically assign TCP/IP settings to the clients you don't want accessing the internet. If you don't give them a "default gateway" address, they won't be able to access the internet. With an appropriate IP and subnet mask, they'll have LAN connectivity.

Check the DHCP Scope on your router beforehand and ensure you only use IP's outside the DHCP scope to avoid possible duplicate IP's.
