Trying to gain internet access via another network....
My internet connection is via cable modem. First, is a cable modem that splits out my internet connection and telephones. The internet connection then goes to a Dlink router w/ wireless, etc. (and everything works good from here!).
I'm trying to get my Cisco lab connected to the internet via the Dlink router. This is because I don't want to disturb any of my other home connections via the working Cable/Dlink setup. I've setup fa0/1 port on my cisco router to dhcp and it successfully gets an address assigned (192.168.0.x) from the Dlink. I have 192.168.100.x assigned to fa0/0 supporting on my internal cisco lab network which then goes to a 3524 switch. I have other routers and pc's on the 192.168.100.x network that can successfully ping the DHCP assigned address, but can't ping any addresses on the internet (like 126.96.36.199). However, the main router being assinged dhcp address can ping internet addresses. How can I get all my cisco lab equipment to have internet access?
Any help will be very much appreciated.
Maybe this is a DNS issue. You ping using an IP address. What happens if you ping say www.cisco.com ? Make sure you have configured an appropriate DNS server for the PC's to use. I guess the appropriate device to forward the DNS requests is the Dlink router IP address 192.168.0.1 (if this router gets the public IP address from provider, it should take the provider DNS server address information as well). At least this kind of setup works in my home network.
