I have an old wl500g running oleg's 188.8.131.52-9 firmware. I want to use it to extend the range of my current main router to get a connection in an old garage on the back of our land where the main router does not have wifi reach
This is my plan:
[fiber-internet]<--->[netgear router]<---100m cable to garage--->
-->[wan port of wl-500g]<-->[wireless to ipad]
If I connect a laptop to the long cable I get a nice DHCP response and a stable 100 mbit connection, fixed IP works as well.
my plan was to run the wl500g in home router mode as well but with a different SSID that the main home router.
I configured the wl500g as follows:
GW: 192.168.1.1 (this is the wan port on the netgear)
DNS: my ISP dns
LAN: DHCP between 192.168.0.10 and 192.168.0.20
router lan ip : 192.168.0.1
I can connect to the wl500g both wireless and wired, and I can browse to the configuration page on 192.168.0.1
However, I cannot connect to the internet through the netgear nor can I reach the server attached to the netgear on 192.168.1.50.
If I login on the wl500g with telnet I CAN connect to the 192.168.1.50 server
So conclusion, routing is going wrong on the wl500g.
How should I configure the IP route section (or something else on the WL500g to get a connection through to the outside world)
If you have other suggestion, thats fine as well of course.
