Access local LAN via second router

Mon Aug 06, 2018 4:24 pm

Hi,

I have default mikrotik router with gateway 192.168.88.1. I have connected to this router a second router, which got local ip address 192.168.88.25. Now, when I connected to to second router, local network gateway is 192.168.0.1. When I try to access ip 192.168.88.250 - I can't reached. How can I allow 192.168.88.* network to be accessible from second router 192.168.0.* ?

If possible, can you provide guide via web UI.

I'm not sure I understand exactly what you are trying to do. Did you want to be using a different subnet on the second router?

unless you specifically want a seperate subnet, I think chances are you would be better off configuring the second router as a switch only by bridging together all of the ports and disabling any DHCP servers etc. Then you would be just using it as a switch and the whole network would be on 192.168.88.x.

If you search, there are plenty of topics and instructions on using a MT router as a switch/access point. I think the default configuration works that way if you don't use ether1 and use Ether2 as the uplink. You probably only need to reconfigure if you want to bridge in ether1. I've never tried it, but there are serveral Quick Set configs that look like they can be set as bridges, rather than routers.

Apologies if I've misunderstood.

1) You'll need a FW permit statement.
2) You need to have static routes or a dynamic routing protocol advertising the routes so your traffic knows how to get your destination and back to your source.
