Custom Static Routes
Typically, you do not need to add static routes unless 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 main Internet access is through a cable modem to an ISP.
Your home network includes an ISDN router 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 134.177.0.0.
When you set up your 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 try to access a device on the 134.177.0.0 network, your router forwards your request to the ISP.
The ISP forwards your request to the company where you are employed, and the company firewall is likely to deny
the request.
In this case you must define a static route, telling your router to access 134.177.0.0 through the ISDN router at
192.168.1.100. Here is an example:
The Destination IP Address and IP Subnet Mask fields specify that this static route applies to all 134.177.x.x
addresses.
The Gateway IP Address field specifies that all traffic for these addresses will be forwarded to the ISDN router
at 192.168.1.100.
A metric value of 1 works because the ISDN router is on the LAN.
The Private check box is selected only as a precautionary security measure in case RIP is activated.
Set Up a Static Route
To set up a static route:
1. Launch a web browser from a computer or WiFi device that is connected to the network.
2. Enter http://www.routerlogin.net.
A login window opens.
3. Enter the router user name and password.
The user name is admin. The default password is password. The user name and password are case-sensitive.
