BGW-201 / LinkSYS/ Open VPN as 2nd network

Hi All

 

I am trying to build a seperate network using my Linksys. I installed dd-wrt. Followed the steps give by NordVPN. 

 

I was able to access internet using my 2nd network, but however VPN is not working. Wondering what important step i am missing which is not allowing my VPN to work?

 

Thanks

Kishore

Well, I'm not familiar with NordVPN and whatever steps those would be, so I really don't know how to advise you.  Did you set up IP Passthrough to the Linksys from the BGW 210?

No Jeffer.How to setup IP Passthrough? Please suggest. I am also not able to open my 2nd Router IP even when connected to 2nd WIFI access point.

Can you draw a diagram of how 2nd WIFI access point is connected into the network vis-a-vis the Gateway and your Linksys?

You set up IP Passthrough on the Firewall > IP Passthrough tab.  Mine looks like this (but other ways will work):

You do realize that 176.1.1.1 is a publicly assignable address, and by using it behind your gateway you may impact your ability to reach hosts on the Internet, right?  172.16.0.0/12 and 192.168.0.0/16 are reserved for private networks and I'd recommend you use a subnet from one of them instead (other than 192.168.1.0/24 since that's used by your BGW's LAN network). 

 

I would not expect you to be able to get to your Linksys from the BGW, neither its Wi-Fi or an Ethernet port, because the BGW isn't configured to know how to route to that subnet.  It's possible for something on the Linksys to reach nodes on the BGW's LAN network, however, and you should be able to PING the Linksys itself from its Wi-Fi and Ethernet LAN ports, assuming it's in Router mode (not access point mode).

I don't see anything wrong so far.
