cannot get Linksys router to work with this Canopy SM

Hello all,

I have a 900SM. Using DHCP/NAT. SM is assigned IP from my server. The customers pc is assigned IP from the SM,etc…

When I plug the SM directly into the PC, it works perfectly. However, when I plug the SM into the WAN port on the Linksys BEFW1154, it dies. I can ping the router, but cannot get any further.

Router is setup this way:
Assigned a static IP of 169.254.1.2, mask 255.255.255.0 default gateway of 169.254.1.1 (the IP of the SM). I set the local address of the router to 169.254.1.10.


SM is set to hand out 5 IPs starting at 169.254.1.2.

The PC will pick up a IP starting at 169.254.1.100 (from the router) with 169.254.1.10 as the gateway (the router).

What am I doing wrong? DO I need to use the DMZ ip?

Thanks all,

Jakkwb

I forgot to mention - I can take the same router and hook it up to my SM (as is), it works fine - everything.

It seems that Im not the only one with this problem, If I figure anything out i would dhare it with u. We are having the exact same problem

Just set the router to get a DHCP IP address from the SM.

Let it pull the first IP and it should work.

If I were to hazard a guess . . .

I would think the router doesn’t like an IP for it’s WAN that is in the same class C address range which the router is told to dispense for internal (LAN) DHCP.

I would try switching either the router or the SM to give out a different address scheme. The Linksys, by default, wants to give out 192.168.1.x on its LAN. I would go back to that and see if it doesn’t magically work.

Newcastle nailed it. A router, by definition routes between different networks. You’ve got the same network configured on both sides of the router. You also want to watch your netmasks. You’re applying a class C netmask (255.255.255.0) to a network that is natively a class B (255.255.0.0). It’s fine if you are sure about what you’re doing, but be careful.

Thanks for the tips. I will try tomorrow.

One more thing about this SM - brand new out of the box. Had 7.3.6 on it, put on 8.1.5. Customer says it shuts off every day around 10am, and does not come back on till late in the day. Sounds like a heat issue (it has been near 100 degrees for about 2 weeks straight here).

I replaced the power supply today just to see what would happen. The new supplies are much smaller. We’ll see how they work…

What could be causing this? I use DHCP and NAT.

Thanks guys,

i kind off confused a bit, if you connect the radio to the WAN port then the RF ip of the SM must be configured to the WAN ip, for example

if the SM RF ip is 172.18.0.59, subnet 255.255.0.0 and the gateway 172.18.0.1.

then in order to get access to the SM through the linksys from the laptop then the RF ip as shown above[[/u:202n3m6s]/b] must be configure to the WAN port of the linksys router.

i had done that before using static ip but i believe it will be the same for dhcp

here is the current log from the above mentioned SM that is shutting off/rebooting:

this repeats about 8 or 9 times since I cleared the log yesterday.

What is causing this?

Swapped out power supplies. Customer reports it ran all day long.

So far so good…
