The issue I have is that the PC outside this router can't see/ping to printer.
I've setup a Netgear router (WNR2000v2 N-router) within the existing network. A PC connected to this router can see and ping the Brother mono printer which is also
connected to the same router. A PC outside this router can ping to the router and the
PC connected to that router but can't ping to this Brother network printer.
The firewall of the PC outside the router has been off.
My intention is to share the Brother printer for users outside and inside this router.
The PC connected to this Netgear router can get the internet and can ping to PCs outside
The printer has a static IP.
The PC outside the router has an IP of 192.168.x.x and subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
The printer has the IP of 192.167.x.x with the same subnet mask. This Netgear router
is not the main router on this network.
The other option I'm thinking of is just to replace the router with a 4-port switch.
Having the 4-port switch, can I extent the limit of CAT5 cable beyond 100 meters?
Chances is that all 4 ports will be used up for PCs and printer.
(one advantage of having wireless N-router is that the printer can go wireless later)
Appreciate if someone can guide to resolve this issue.
