I'm trying to create a static route in my WAG320N. The two subnets that I want to connect/route are
192.168.1.0/24 (wag320n IP : 192.168.1.1) and 192.168.2.0/24 (other gateway/router IP : 192.168.2.1)
<!-- the gateways are connected via Ethernet cable -->.
I go to the Advanced Routing (@ my WAG320N) and I try to add a static route:
Destination IP Address : 192.168.2.0
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway :192.168.1.1 (WAG320N's IP Address)
When I fill the fields and press Save I get the message :Invalid Gateway Address. Enter Again.
Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong?
P.S.. I already have setup a simple static route on the other router with the same pattern.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hello there!!! Thank you for the reply.
If I got right what you are saying , you suggest that the gateway address in the static route should be the IP of the other gateway/router. Well this was my first try to setup and I got the same message. That's why I tried to use the WAG320N IP address (192.168.1.1) in the gateway field.
In the other router I did the same thing -as you also mentioned- and the static rule was created successfully
(IP:192.168.1.0, Subnet:255.255.255.0, Gateway:192.168.1.1).
Still I couldn't ping (192.168.1.1) from the other subnet (192.168.2.x).
Any ideas on why the WAG320N is not accepting the route?

Please let me explain again... I hope this time will be clearer.
I own a wag320n router/gateway with a adsl connection and a netfaster iad 2 router/gateway with another adsl connection,
so there are two different subnets 192.168.1.xxx (wag320n) and 192.168.2.xxx (netfaster iad 2). On each router/gateway are connected four or more computers. The only thing that I want to achieve is that the computers connected on 192.168.1.xxx subnet to communicate with the computers connected in 192.168.2.xxx subnet and vice versa (not to share any internet connection or do NAT to the subnets).
So the static route that I tried on wag320n was :
Netowrk IP :192.168.2.0 , Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0 , Gateway (next-hop) : 192.168.2.1
and also did the same thing on the other router/gateway (netfaster iad 2) :
Netowrk IP :192.168.1.0 , Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0 , Gateway (next-hop) : 192.168.1.1
which by the way was accepted as a static route unlike the one that I tried on the wag320n.

So, if I want to stick to my case/scenario, how it would be possible to run two different IP subnets in the same LAN?
It would require different equipment/hardware or setup? Generally how it is possible to interconnect two different local subnets?
(Without using LAN to LAN VPN solution).
