    Hi,

    I have a routing problem,

    I have 2 subnets + 1 Wireless
    1) Netgear FVS124G router (192.168.3.1) with DHCP server for the
    subnet 192.168.3.0
    2) USR8200 router (192.168.2.1) with DHCP server for the subnet
    192.168.2.0
    the USR8200 has also the 192.168.3.4 address attributed by the
    Netgear router
    3) the wireless subnet uses the Netgear FVS124G DHCP server

    see figure below


    -dsl modem-
    |
    --Netgear FVS124G- 4 port router--------
    | | |
    PC1 WG302-AP USR8200 - 4 port router------
    ! | |
    ! PC3 printer
    !
    PC2 with wireless connection

    Netgear address = 192.168.3.1
    USR8200 address = 192.168.3.4 on the first subnet
    192.168.2.1 on the 2nd subnet
    WG302-AP address = 192.168.3.2
    PC1 address = 192.168.3.5
    PC2 address = 192.168.3.7
    PC3 address = 192.168.2.2
    printer address = 192.168.2.3

    PC3 can address the printer without problem

    PC1, running WinXP SP2 can address the printer only the 1st minute
    following the start-up,
    its routing table shows the following route :
    192.168.2.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.3.4 (which is great!)
    after a minute, this route disappears from its routing table !!!

    PC2 cannot ping or see the printer

    Of course I can add a static route on each PC, "192.168.2.3 -
    192.168.3.4" but this is not satisfactory.

    I have tried 2 solutions :
    Activating RIP on both routers
    Adding a static route on the Netgear (192.168.2.0 - 192.168.3.4)
    both solutions allow the Netgear to address the printer, but PC2 still
    cannot address the printer and PC1 can see the printer for one minute
    only.

    Any idea?

    Thanks for your help

    the first question is why? for what reason do you have all those subnets
    for such a small network? how about turning off all but one dhcp
    server(preferably the one connected to the internet that is doing nat for
    you) and turning those other routers into dumb switches or just getting rid
    of them.
