Re: Access to sub network unreachable.

	Hi all,

have no idea what so I'll ask anyhow.

	All the computers on our SOHO network had static addresses in the
192.168.0.1-9 range with netmask of 255.255.255.0 and all worked fine
for ages.  Now I have a Linksys gateway which has a default address of
192.168.1.1 for configuration.  It works fine as a DSL router but I
cannot use a browser to access the configuration.  All I get is "An
error occurred while loading http://192.168.1.1: Could not connect to
host."  Pinging returns "Destination Host Unreachable".

	I changed the netmask for the ethx device to 255.255.0.0 but this made
no difference.  What have I forgotten?

This doesn't help as the linksys most probably has netmask of 255.255.255.0 what will help on the other hand is to make eth0:1 interface in which you will give ip-address in 192.168.1.0 network. For example /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfc-eth0:1 could look like this, if you are using NetworkManager there is probably some other way of doing this, but as I use fedora for desktop so little I haven't really checked it out.

DEVICE=eth0:1
BOOTPROTO=none
IPADDR=192.168.1.2
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
TYPE=Ethernet

And then ifup eth0:1 (if it doesn't work service network restart will for sure.)

Hope this helps,
