Model: Archer C2300  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 2.0.3

the archer is the router between the internet and the local network of 192.168.6.0/24

there is a router at 192.168.6.3 that connects to 192.168.131.0/24

 

I want my laptop (192.168.131.2) to ping my computer (192.168.6.113) 

 

I added a static route in the archer Advanced -> network -> static routing

 

network destination: 192.168.131.0
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
default gateway: 192.168.6.3
interface: lan


 I put the check in enable this entry and then I can ping the archer (192.168.6.1) from my laptop, but not my computer. I put a static route on another host (192.168.6.2) and I can ping that one from my laptop too, but in the end, I want to control a light which I can not put a static route onto.

 

How do I set up a static route on the router so that I can get my laptop to ping my computer?

Can you provide the detailed network layout, how are the devices connected, and what are the IP address and gateway on them? Then we will try to figure it out.

 

Meanwhile, you can refer to this guide to configure the static route on the router:

@jackn007 

 

Hi, what am I doing wrong? I have a router (Mikrotik) at home, where I have the main range 192.168.0.X(/24) and two other routers (without NAT, in their range ending 192.168.(1-2).1) with secondary ranges 192.168.1.X/24 and 192.168.2.X/24. Devices from these ranges normally access the Internet and can communicate across ranges on the network.

 

When I replaced Mikrotik with TP-Link Archer AX73, set the same IP address, so I found out that only the routers themselves can access the Internet, but their clients do not. The configuration on the secondary routers did not change, I just replaced the main router (Mikrotik) with TP-Link with the same configuration.

 

When I tracert to these ranges (from main range 192.168.0.X to 1.X or 2.X), it goes to the main router (192.168.0.1) and then out to the Internet (not within the LAN).

Can this TP-Link be used as a classic router, which allows to have more ranges (using other routers in the LAN)?

 

Thank you.
