RV042G - access modem connected to a WAN port

Hi,

I have set up my RV042G with only one WAN line currently using an Alice IAD modem to connect to my ISP. This device has an own web server for configuration currently configured on IP 192.168.0.1. The dual WAN router got the WAN IP address 192.168.0.4 (fixed address) and a LAN IP of 192.168.0.5. Now I need to access the modem from time to time for maintenance but cannot reach address 192.168.0.1. Can the RV042G be  configured to make communications between the modem and LAN devices possible? I tried to set a static route, but that didn't help. I'm by no way a network expert.

Thanks,

Mike

RV042G - access modem connected to a WAN port

Hi Mike, if your modem has the capacity to log in locally, then the RV042G LAN subnet should be different than the modem LAN subnet. Since your modem is 192.168.0.x your RV042G can be 192.168.1.x for the LAN. So the RV042G WAN is 192.168.0.x.

This should accomplish your goal.

Hey Tom, thanks for taking the time to look at my problem.

In fact you solved it! I expected to have no access to the separate subnet when I would set the router up as you mentioned it. But actually everything is fine. This shows my limited knowlege about networking. Thanks again,

Mike
