I have a lab setup with 3 routers and 3 switches, but for simplicity for this issue, I turned on only 1 router and 1 switch and ran this test with the same results so I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with my ip route statements.
PC >> Cisco Router >> Cisco switch >> Home Router
FE0/0 192.168.1.15 /24
FE0/1 192.168.10.1 /24
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1
Switch (default vlan1 only)
ip default-gateway 192.168.1.1
The default-gateway is my live/home router that I access the internet.
The problem is: The router (192.168.1.15) can ping outside addresses, but even if I plug my PC directly into the routers FE0/1 port (192.168.10.1), the router will not forward anything to the outside world from my PC. If the router can get out, why can't my PC? The PC has no problem pinging the FE0/0 interface.
IP 192.168.10.51 /24
Router - show ip route...
Gateway of last resort is 192.168.1.1 to network 0.0.0.0
S* 0.0.0.0/0 [1/0] via 192.168.1.1
192.168.1.0/24 is variably subnetted, 2 subnets, 2 masks
C 192.168.1.0/24 is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0
L 192.168.1.15/32 is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0
Any help is appreciated, Thanks!
