That option is only available if you have two network adapters installed on a client. Then you could bridge the two networks for that client. So basically this isn't an option for me right now.
On the other hand I do actually have two network adapters on the system I'm typing this from. If I were to hook up this system to both routers maybe it could be the bridge between the two local networks. So that might be a possibility. This would be more of a hardware work around.
On the software/routing side...What about subnet masking? I'm not real knowledgeable with how subnetting works. Would it be possible to just increase the range by making the subnet 255.255.0.0? If so how would I go about that? Do I have to change it for all the clients and the routers as well? If I have to change it for the routers that may be a problem because the wireless router configuration page doesn't allow me to specify it's local settings. When I look at the gateway status page it shows me the following:
Gateway IP Address: 192.168.0.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255. 0
DHCP Server: Enabled
NAT : Enabled
Wireless Status : Enabled
Operating Mode: NAT mode
Private IP Range: 192.168.0.10 through 192.168.0.17
Public IP Range:
System Up-Time: 9 days 0 Hours 43 Minutes 44 Seconds
As the name of the page suggests, it's just a status page. You can't edit the fields. So I wouldn't be able to change it's subnet mask if that's required to accomplish this.
Any N+ certified guys that can help out there?
