Static Route on WBR2310
« on: December 26, 2008, 03:23:22 PM »

I recently upgraded from a flaky Linksys router but need to set up a static route.  Is there any way to do this on this model??

A static route?

Do you mean that you want to set up the WAN side of the device to have a static IP address or that you want to assign a static IP address to a device on the LAN side?

Both are part of what it will do - and I am doing them with great success.

In fact, I have done that with both the firmware designed for this router AND also with firmware designed for another router loaded into it (see previous thread).

This is the link to the support page for this router at dlink.com:

Code: [Select]
http://support.dlink.com/products/view.asp?productid=WBR-2310
The FAQ section has info about setting up these two things.

By the way, if you want to play with the router software and not do any damage to anything, you will find emulators for a number of DLINK routers on the main DLINK web site. Very useful as they have the help files (of limited value, but they are some help) there too.

Good luck.

No, I need to route an external IP address from one device to a computer on the LAN.  The computer on the LAN is configured with multiple IP address to emulate the external service but the router needs to trap it and re-route it internally.  My Linksys router could be configured to do this.

The WBR-2310 won't do this but I wonder if you can use the ROUTE command or the ARP command on your LAN computer(s) to accomplish the same thing.  (examples below are linux, windows is similar but not the same - check help).  I'd bet that only the route command is the necessary one. 

route add 44.55.66.77 mask 255.255.255.255 192.168.0.100 metric 25 dev eth0

where 44.55.66.77 is the public IP address that you're re-routing
where 192.168.0.100 is the LAN IP that receives the packet.
where eth0 is the interface

 - AND/OR -

arp -v -i eth0 -s 44.55.66.77 00:1e:58:f3:26:e5

where 44.55.66.77 is the public IP address that you're re-routing
where 00:1e:58:f3:26:e5 is the LAN MAC address that receives the packet.
where eth0 is the interface

Funchords, I was going to post just about the same suggestion as you did...

Windows (at least XP/Pro) has both a route and an ARP command.  :D

You can get at the help text (less detail than the kind of stuff in a Linux man page, but easier to follow), just by entering the command 'route' (no parameters), at the command line prompt - start/run/cmd.

I was able to get this to work by changing the gateway address on the device to point to the PC configured with the two IP's instead of the router address.   Thanks for the suggestions.
