Mergin 2 far network into one

Mon Nov 12, 2012 7:30 pm

Hi i am trying to merge 2 network using this guide http://blog.butchevans.com/2009/12/how- ... -and-pptp/

my lan look like this

dsl---192.168.1.xxx(lan/ehternet2)router1(wan/ehthernet1)10.0.0.10----10.0.0.11(wan/ethernet1)router2(lan/ehternet2)192.168.1.xxx

A laptop on router2 lan receive ip from dhcp server from dsl , can ping computers on router1 lan side, can explore smb (folders share) but i cant surf the web. I forgot something?

Now the connection between the 2 wan is made by one ethernet cable just for testing.

thanks for anyone is able to help me

first of all you can not test butch evans script using an ethernet cable
second of all your topology is wrong

what you want should be like
192.168.1.xxx---[lan-router1-wan]---dsl------internet------dsl/other internet connection---[wan-router2-lan]---192.168.1.yyy
the tunnel must be made between wan ip of router1 and wan ip of router2, and bridging must be made between lan port and pptp-client on router1 and lan port and pptp-server on router2.
pptp-server has to be the router which has public ip configured on wan interface or some portforwarding if the wan interface is behind a dsl modem for example.

Well your diagram is correct in a normal scenario, but is not what i am trying to do. There is no internet connection between the 2 wan port. I am using a cable but it will turn into a wireless connection when all will work.

i will try to explain what i want to do.

192.168.1.xxx(lan/router1/wan)wireless station-----access point-----wireless station(wan/router2/lan)192.168.1.yyy

Wireless will be done with some Ubiquiti wireless product.

Why using a access point? Why dont use wds? the 2 point are not visible and i have to merge few network on the same access point. I thought with this kind of solution i can merge more than a network being able to keep the traffic separated and secured. There is any other solution?

replace
---dsl------internet------dsl/other internet connection---
in my diagram with
wireless station-----access point-----wireless station
in your diagram.
same principle applies
set a pptp-server on one of the routers wan ip, a pptp-client on the other router, connect the pptp-client to the ip address of the pptp-server and then bridge on each router pptp interface with the lan interface.
try doing a traceroute to 8.8.8.8 from a computer connected to the second router.
where does it stop?
can you ping 8.8.8.8 from a computer connected to the second router?
can you access the internet from a computer connected to the first router?

does the access point have security enabled?
why not just bridge wan and lan in each router and lan and wlan in each wireless station?
