Intranet Routes

Manually configured routing entries in the router's routing table to define where to forward network packets destined for specific IP address ranges or networks.

The "Static Routes" allows access to specific devices across different routers. For example, if device A connects to the outdoor router, as the image below shows, and requires access to device B, which is linked to another indoor router, we need to set static IP and static routes, as the below step shows.

Static IP

Go to the OutdoorRouter and set a static IP for the IndoorRouter.

Log into the OutdoorRouter and navigate to "Network > DHCP AND DNS." Then, scroll down to "Static Leases" and click the "Add" button.

  1. Hostname - Name to indicate the indoor router.

  2. MAC Address - Choose the correct address of the indoor router.

  3. IPv4 Address - The static IP address assigned to the indoor router.

  4. Lease Time - Use "infinite" to permanently release the static IP to the indoor router.

  5. Click the "Save & Apply" button on the bottom right corner to finish the static IP settings.

Static IPv4 Routes

Navigate to "Network > Static Routes" to customize the routing to the IndoorRouter.

  1. Interface - use LAN

  2. Host-IP - The indoor router's IP address. For example,

  3. IPv4 Netmask - The indoor router's subnet mask. Suggest using the same subnet on the indoor router, which is

  4. IPv4 Gateway - The WAN IP address previously set in the step of Static IP.

  5. Click the "Save & Apply" button.

Turn Off WAN NAT

To successfully route from upstream OutdoorRouter, we need to turn off the NAT on the WAN interface of the IndoorRouter. This setting usually appears under the WAN interface or firewall settings. Locate the "NAT" or "Masquerade" switch and turn it off.

If unable to find the NAT switch, contact the seller of the IndoorRouter for technical assistance.
