Set Up and Manage Custom Static Routes
Static routes provide detailed routing information to your modem router. Typically, you do not
need to add static routes. You must configure static routes only for unusual cases such as
when you use multiple routers or multiple IP subnets on your network.
As an example of when a static route is needed, consider the following case:
•Your primary Internet access is through an ADSL modem to an ISP.
•You use an ISDN router on your home network for connecting to the company where you
are employed. This router’s address on your LAN is 192.168.1.100.
•Your company’s network address is 22.214.171.124.
When you first configured your modem router, two implicit static routes were created. A
default route was created with your ISP as the gateway and a second static route was
created to your local network for all 192.168.1.x addresses. With this configuration, if you
attempt to access a device on the 126.96.36.199 network, your modem router forwards your
request to the ISP. The ISP forwards your request to the company where you are employed,
and the request is likely to be denied by the company’s firewall.
