Real beginner here, struggling with my first real life network problem, existing kit, and almost no budget.
Two departments, which have to remain private from each other, are to be linked to main office, where the firewall routers and Internet connections are located by wireless bridge. The bridge is connected to one port in firewall router which defines the subnet and gateway.
Unfortunately, the bridge comprises a pair of EOC 8610+ 5GHz Wi-Fi devices which are working well, but cannot (at least for me) transmit DHCP across the bridge.
My plan is to set up three subnets and VLANs on a managed switch on the remote side of the bridge (Netgear M4100 GSM5212), e.g. .128, .160, .192 /27, each being part of the parent network defined at the firewall (.128/25) on my side of bridge. At present none of the devices with the managed switch are VLAN aware.
I plan to use the managed switch as a DHCP server, with ACLs to maintain security.
- Is this a credible plan?
- Is there an easier way?
- How do I set the default routes for the sub-sub nets when default route is first IP address of main subnet and therefore not in two of the three subnets.
Please forgive my ignorance, but need help here.
