I have to Internet connections in my house, both have a tomato-usb router. They work fine separately, but if I want to access a device on the other network then I have to switch my wireless connection to the other network. I want to setup a route between the two networks locally via a wired connection. I have seen tutorials on doing this via VPN, but I don't want to go across the Internet, as that will be slow.
I tried plugging in a network cable between 1 port on the router and the same port on the 2nd router. Then I setup a route in each router.
router 1: 192.168.52.0 192.168.52.1 Interface LAN 1
router 2: 192.168.51.0 192.168.51.1 Interface LAN 1
The idea being if I try to access anything in the IP range of the other router it should pass it via that separate connection.
Of course it didn't work and it got me thinking, is this even possible? Somehow I have to setup one of the ports differently than normal.
I can see that this could be done with the use of a third router fairly easily to bridge the two networks, but I can't get my head round how to configure this with what I have.
Can anyone help point me in the right direction as to what I need to do.
