I inherited a wireless network with multiple wireless AP's connected to two GW's in a mesh configuration. The GW's are wireless AP's as well and are connected to two separate 2950 switches. Each switch is connected to 2621 routers.
The AP's hand out IP's on the 10.0.x.x /23 network and funnel the packets across a 10.1.1.0 /24 network to the routers, which are on a 172.16.0.0 /16 network. All traffic is then passed through a 172.16.0.0 gateway to the Internet.
The switches that the wireless GW's connect to are on the 10.0.x.x network. I can access all switches and all routers, but not the wireless AP's or GW's. I've tried adding secondary IP addresses to include the 10.1.x.x network, but still am unable to connect.
Because the wireless network is meshed I cannot subnet the GW's and build a route to each gateway on the separate networks.
My questions are, first, is it necessary to configure the switches with the 10.0.x.x IP address? Second, how would I build a route to the 10.1.1.0 network in two directions off separate interfaces from the main router? I need to be able to access all devices from the central location.
Thanks in advance for your help.
