How do I create a route between two subnets?
The static routes should be configured with:
- Destination LAN NET – The remote subnet that you are creating the route for.
- Subnet Mask – The subnet mask of the remote subnet.
- Gateway – This must be set to the IP address of the next hop to the destination subnet which in this case is the WAN IP of Router2 and Router3.
Can you route between subnets?
Routers carry traffic from one network/subnet to another. Routers maintain a routing table to decide how to route the IP packets. Each routing entry consists of the destination address, subnet mask and “route to” field.
Can you have different subnets on the same network?
*You can have more than just two subnets on a LAN. Cisco refers to them all as secondary addresses although they technically should be called tertiary, quartenary, etc.
Can you have different subnets on the same switch?
quote: You can use the same switch for multiple subnets, but you need to you VLAN’s that is what they are there for, unless you switch won’t support VLAN’s. First time your switch gets a MAC address back that has an IP addresses in more than one subnet it’s gonna freak out.
Do I need a router between subnets?
You don’t need a router. If you set the subnet mask on all of the PCs to be 255.255. 0.0, then they should all be able to ping each other. Basically, opening up the subnet mask puts all of the PCs on the same subnet, so a router isn’t needed.
How do you bridge a subnet?
Connect the “LAN” port to the “network 1” network and give it a static IP address in the “network 1” subnet. Disable any DHCP server on the router. Connect the router’s “Internet” port to the “network 2” network and give it a static IP address in the “network 2” subnet.
Can 2 different subnets talk to each other?
Devices in different subnets can communicate. That is the purpose of a router. Routers route packets between different networks. Even if devices in different networks are on the same layer-2 broadcast domain, you need a router to let the devices communicate at layer-3.
Can a router handle multiple subnets?
1) It is possible to have multiple subnets “behind” one router; the Internet would be a very broken place with millions more routers needed if it were not. However, your example of using a /16 subnet mask on the LAN interface, with many /24’s connecting to it, is not exactly how it would actually function.
Can multiple subnets be on same VLAN?
While going through the CCNP switch book of CISCO, I encountered this statement ” The switch port supports one VLAN, but multiple subnets can exist on that single VLAN. ” I thought that since a vlan is a broadcast domain, only one subnet can be associated with a particular VLAN.
Can 2 subnets talk to each other?
What is subnetting? A subnet is just a range of IP addresses. All the devices in the same subnet can communicate directly with one another without going through any routers.
