Hi, routing issues from HH to secondary network

Hi all,

   I have (fairly) recently started using a BT 'fibre' connection.

To simplify the changeover I bought a TP-Link TL-WR940N  WIFI / LAN capable router. Most of my existing devices are on this network (both wired and wireless).

The TP-Link is connected to the BT Hub via cat5.

I also have a hand full of devices connecting wirelessly to the BT Hub.

The BT Network (HDLC) is using 192.168.1.XXX, the TP-Link network is using 192.168.0.XXX. The TP-link box is known as 192.168.1.221 to the Hub.

This setup works OK except that devices on the 1.XXX can't communicate with devices on the 0.XXX network. I am assuming that this is caused by a routing table issue. I wanted to set up routing of all traffic for 0.XXX to the port that supports the TP-Link, or the MAC address of the TP-Link.... but can't find any way to do this.

Is there are routing tabe in the Hub? Is there anything anyone would suggest to improve this network. (I would like to continue to use the TP-link HDLC because it supports some static numbers and I don't want to have to reset all my network settings every time I change ISP.

All suggestions gratefully received.

Re: Hi, routing issues from HH to secondary network

Try setting the gateway subnet mask to 255.255.0.0 on both devices.
