Hi,

2- i share this loopback with my local network (LAN)

what do you mean? you bridged the loopback and the physical interface ? to give a DHCP address to router interface?

my ip address (lan): 138.132.x.x subent 255.255.255.0

router ip address assegned by dhcp :192.168.x.x subent 255.255.255.0

these are 2 different subnets and on your LAN you've got a public IP?

Hi,

so your bridged interface is on  138.132.x.x  subnet and your router Ip is on 192.168.x.x subnet, ok?

then when you ping from PC it will use it's default gateway and it can't work.

try configuring a static route to 192.168.x.x on your PC with route add command.

note that try to add in the table route using this comand:

c:\ route add 192.168.x.x mask 255.255.0.0  138.132.x.x

But no way..

Hi,

try with a host route : mask 255.255.255.255 and clear arp cache with arp -d * and verify the route is indeed in the routing table with route print -4

But when i lunch tracert ip, command line utility that can be used to trace the path a packet's IP (Internet Protocol) to arrive at its destination  as you see here output message : (Destination host unreachable) !!


C:\>tracert 192.168.x.x (router ip)

Tracing route to Router.mshome.net [192.168.x.x]
