davil Posted June 10, 2010 Share Posted June 10, 2010 Howdy all, as usual I failed with my google searching on this and I've come to the experts to ask for help. They've blocked facebook as well as my own domain here where I work and I may have a solution: We have a wired network setup here on Active Directory etc - 10.175.x.x 255.255.0.0 and I just hooked up a Wireless AP which is on a DSL setup - 192.168.1.x 255.255.255.0 and I can connect to the AP over wifi with my iPod touch and know it's working but I also would like to be able to route some stuff from my Win7 PC here over wifi (I have a USB 802.11g adapter) and I'm not sure how to do it. We use a proxy on our AD network and most of the time I want to use that, in google chrome for example where I do most of my work, the proxy settings are pulled in from IE. So I thought if I use firefox, turn off proxy in there, and change the 'binding order' of my network adapters and put the wireless one first, I could use firefox for the DSL stuff and stick to google chrome for Lan stuff. However, this didn't work and my non-network head makes me guess it's something to do with subnet / gateways - I know that the two networks are on different subnet classes for example but I don't know if that's causing a problem. also I'm not sure if setting the wireless network as Home or Work or Public will make a difference ?? I had considered setting up a smoothwall / squid proxy as I have done this before, but it's far easier to hide a Wireless AP than a whole PC at the back of our network cabinet. So if anybody can tell me how to route certain data over wifi without using a proxy I'd be really grateful. P.S. it was working there for a second, at least, I can ping the 192.168.1.254 DSL router but it's not routing my net traffic properly. it's something simple (DNS or something) I can almost taste it....
