I've just moved into a new shared office and bought a Gigabit switch to add ethernet sockets to the network, in addition to having WiFi access from a shared wireless access point.
I've connected all devices up to the network and setup static IP's for each device. I haven't touched the wireless access point's configuration as it's shared for the office and I don't want to screw up anyone else's internet access.
Here's a quick diagram to show an overview of the office's network setup:
The problem I'm having is that no device on the network has internet access (except for devices connecting through the router). However, each device can communicate with each other if I ping one device from another.
What would be the best way of debugging this issue? I'm no genius when it comes to networking, but I know the basics. I need internet access from the NAS and as it's a wired device I can't access files from it remotely. I can connect to the internet through the shared wireless access point, but this kind of defeats me buying the additional hardware to setup the network like this.
I've tried messing around with ip configurations for hours, as well as contacting I.T support for the office space but they didn't know what was wrong and said just to use the Wifi. I have a feeling some sort of restriction may be in place higher up in the network which is out of my control which says only the router's mac address is allowed internet. Is this a possibility? Any advice would be appreciated!
