I've got a standard router (192.168.1.1) that is connected to the internet. It also has the following connected to it:
- an un-managed switch which all wired devices connect to.
- a Tenda Mesh WiFi Router (192.168.1.9 >> 192.168.5.1) connected to it.
Devices connected to the Tenda have IPs of 192.168.5.x and I can't connect to them from devices connected to the main router.
UPDATE: I've seen some posts referencing 'Routes' within netctl, but I get:
Jan 14 22:56:00 deviceX network: Could not add route '192.168.5.0/24 via 192.168.1.9,' to interface 'eno1' Jan 14 22:56:00 deviceX dhclient: receive_packet failed on eno1: Network is down Jan 14 22:56:00 deviceX network: Failed to bring the network up for profile 'mynet-eno1-dhcp'
My current netctl profile is:
Description='A basic dhcp ethernet connection' Interface=eno1 Connection=ethernet IP=dhcp #Routes=('192.168.5.0/24 via 192.168.1.9', '192.168.1.0/24 via 192.168.1.1') DHCPClient=dhclient #DHCPReleaseOnStop=no ## for DHCPv6 IP6=dhcp DHCP6Client=dhclient ## for IPv6 autoconfiguration #IP6=stateless
In order to connect seamlessly between these two networks, how (and where) can I create a Static Route. Also, do I need to do this on multiple machines. My computers are all running Arch Linux, including several Raspberry Pis which are always on, that could server as intermediate points, if that would work.
