Routing Question

I have a cable model that generally allows access to its info panel through the ip address 192.168.100.1. The cable company will give me a WAN address of 66.77.88.99. So the cable modem has 2 addresses on the same interface. (or at least its supposed to).

How do I set up my routing table so that my desktop computer (192.168.0.2) which is on LAN1 can access the cable modems panel?

Thanks!

I assume your desktop computer is on the LAN behind a ZyXEL ZyWALL or something to that effect.

Then you can add a virtual interface to the WAN port that is connected to your Cable modem.

IP: 192.168.100.2
Subnet: 255.255.255.0 (its a guess, but try and find the correct one)
GW: 192.168.100.1

Also, I don't think 66.77.88.99 is an address of the modem interface, but instead is provided to you to use on your router's WAN interface.

OK. So that makes sense.
I was adding a routing table entry that said any packets trying to reach 192.168.100.1 should go out the WAN port. I guess that does not really work.

ill give your suggestion a try.

Worked like a charm! Thanks so much JPedroT!

Also, while I was in there I noticed I had my egress set to 2000. Solves my second problem \o/
