    Default Route issues for Internet between Wired Ethernet & 8092.11g

    Hi all,

    Setup my fathers office PC, he's wrapped with having everything networked!

    Only problem is that for him to get Internet through the Wireless LAN Connection the office Wired LAN needs to be disabled. This presents a problem because it needs to be enabled so he can print to the photocopier.

    As soon as the Wired LAN is disabled, internet through wireless is fine. Enable it and the printer works again.

    Heres the Routing table when the LAN is ENABLED:
    C:\Documents and Settings\User>route print

    ================================================== =========================

    None

    How do I configure it to have the default gateway of the Wireless, and not the Wired LAN? Tried playing around with the route settings but am only really familiar with it in Linux.

    Thanks

    Why do you need to have a default gateway on the wired network? 192.168.10.1?

    Looking at that route print it looks like your internet router is 192.168.1.1?

    I would go into the TCP/IP settings of the wired lan connection and remove the gateway IP address (192.168.10.1) in there if you don't need a gateway (which you shouldn't unless there is some other network that you need access to through gateway 192.168.10.1)

    Just thought of another question:
    Do they need to be separate subnets? Could you make all the 192.168.10.?? network devices 192.168.1.?? and then bridge the LAN and WLAN networks on your fathers machine.

    Yeah theres a password been set on the Photocopier and I cant change it. Weird I know, but yeah. thats what I was told.

    So basically just removing the Gateway, or setting it even to 192.168.1.1 (the wireless AP IP) should suffice?

    I'll have a crack in the AM then

    It would change the gateway to your pc instead of the modem.
