I am a fresh network engineer and tasked with building a test bed to provide remote internet connectivity for users in remote areas.
I have no problems pinging the terminals located on both ends of the network but the remote terminal simply cannot connect to the Internet. Below is the diagram that I was following.
Remote PC ------Remote Router A ====== Remote Router B ----- Gateway (with Internet access)
---- is LAN and === wireless transmission
The leftmost network (remote) is
The network between router is
The rightmost network (Internet) is
It might be worth noting that the remote routers are more like modems with router capabilities. They only have one Ethernet port.
A PC connected to the gateway (it's a Linksys) via LAN can ping the remote PC. It can also ping any of the remote routers along the route. The same can be done from the remote PC's end.
However, when I try to ping a URL, for example google.com, using the remote PC, I will get the message that the name cannot be resolved.
I was wondering if anyone could give me some pointers on what is going wrong? I've been at it for weeks, and I'm running out of options to try.
i tried pinging the ip address of google and it didn't work either. router is a satellite modem. remote PC is set to a static ip of 192.168.201.2/24. remote router A is 192.168.201.1/24. remote PC was configured with a DNS address (not 188.8.131.52 though)
Some elaboration regarding the image. Currently the setup is still being tested so the Tx and Rx ports of both Modem A and B are connected via cable.
The Linksys Gateway (Linksys 10/100 8 port VPN Router RV082) connects to the Internet through its WAN/Internet port. a total of 8 PCs can be connected to it to use the internet in this way.
Right now, I can ping from Remote PC to Modem A, Modem B, Linksys, Another PC. It fails when I ping to any IP on the Internet.
Remote PC has been configured with the same DNS settings as Another PC.
Routing Table of Modem A:
0.0.0.0/0 routed via BNC
Routing Table of Modem B:
192.168.201.0/24 routed via BNC
0.0.0.0/0 routed via ETH to 192.168.200.1
Routing Table of Linksys:
192.168.201.0/24 to use 192.168.200.200 as gateway
Device IP: 192.168.200.1/24
Device's connection to Internet is via static IP 147.25.x.x/24 with the gateway indicated as 184.108.40.206/24
I need to specify a next hop address for ETH on the Modem routes but not if the are using BNC because it is a point-to-point setup.
unfortunately, i can't share much about the linksys router as i have no access to the Internet facing side. i am only aware of the DNS server, default GW and the dynamic ip range.
Hope this is clearer.
