The office we have now has 2 ADSL connections coming in. One is dedicated for one high bandwidth graphics uploader :) the modem ip is 22.214.171.124 and client ip is 126.96.36.199 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.252 this modem plugs directly into our Linksys SR2024 unmanaged switch.
The second modem has an IP of 188.8.131.52 and a client IP of 184.108.40.206 with subnet of 255.255.255.252 again. It connects through to a Linksys VPN WRV210 router which has DHCP enabled in range of 192.168.2.1-254. This router then connects to the same SR2024 switch.
The user who has the designated adsl line has her XP system set up with a fixed IP Address 220.127.116.11 and subnet mask 255.255.255.252. the rest of the office have their IP addresses assigned in the 192 range fine.
All of this had been set up by an IT guy worked fine including the ability of the user 18.104.22.168 being able to print to any of the network printers attached to the 192 subnet.
In a moment of haste when taking instructions over the phone one of our staff performed a complete reset of the 22.214.171.124 modem which then defaulted it back to its out of the box 192.168.1.1 and then when that user of course could get no internet access one of the "network gurus" in the office decided her issues lay with the weird ip settings in her NIC setup and reverted that back to obtain automatically.
So now she was part of the 192.168.2.xxx subnet.
I went through and reset the modem correctly with the help of the ISP and then her computer settings. Presto we have internet connectivity fine but cannot for the life of me get her system to see or print to the network printers on the second subnet.
Any clues ????
Thanks so much
