Hi, I am wondering if I need to add a static rout to my eth1 for my wireless router if my network setttings are configured like this: My eth1 is set to 192.168.0.1 and my wireless router ip is 192.168.0.2. Is there a need to create a static route using 192.168.0/24 via 192.168.0.1 since they are on the same subnet?

I have read that you would if I were to have set it up using 192.168.99.x

thanks.

    you only need to add static routes if there is no obvious route from one subnet / network to another. By default ClearOS will setup static routes for each of your interfaces. I think from your post you have ClearOS as the gateway, connected to the LAN port of your wireless router which has a static IP, nothing wrong with that setup :)

    Hi John, thanks for your reply. I am not going to add it as a static rout because everything works fine as is, the web proxy, content filter are working as is.

    Hi Krod,

    I am not sure and if it works for you, I would not change it.
    Otherwise ... my eth0 is the connection to my router and eth1 to my LAN, but I cannot confirm if this makes any difference.

    Your question about static routes will have to wait for someone else to answer that.
    All I know is that my eth0 is configured as DHCP and my eth1 has a static ip.

    Greetings,

    John
