Rogers Hitron CGN3 - how do I add a static route?

Hi all,

 

My network setup is as follows:

 

Rogers Modem/Router (Hitron CGN3) [192.168.0.1]
                     ↓
Router ASUS AC66U (dd-wrt) [WAN IP 192.168.0.10]
                     ↓
LAN clients [192.168.2.* from DHCP pool of ASUS router]
  1. ISP Modem acts as gateway, is NOT in a bridged mode.
  2. WiFi clients connected to Hitron CGN3 get IP in 192.168.0.x subnet.

Question.

 

How can I configure routing on Hitron so that WiFi clients from 192.168.0.x subnet can see and access devices that are connected to ASUS router in 192.168.2.x subnet?

 

Where in the UI of Hitron do you configure static routes?

 

Thanks!

 

My question is also on StackOverflow HERE.

Hi @temuri416,

 

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

 

Once you log in to your modem, you can find Static Route under the Advanced tab. 

 

Lets check with our REs @Gdkitty and @Datalink, anything else to add?

Hi,

 

There is no such thing as "Advanced" tab in CGN3 (kind of an oxymoron, too).

 

Can you please provide conrete steps to add static routes via CGN3 GUI?

 

Thanks!

Re: Rogers Hitron CGN3 - how do I add a static route?

There is no facility to add static routes to any of the CGN3XXX series or CGNM-3552 modems.

At least what is accessable by the USER, there is no way to enter static routes, as Datalink said.

 

 

Just curious why you need to.. why you have the particular setup you do?

Do you have a particular reason you have two seperate subnets, etc setup?

Hi @Datalink and @Gdkitty, thank you for the correction.

To access AC66U lan from CGN3 wlan, you need to configure AC66U DMZ or Port Forward.

 

Example

 

Place 192.168.2.254 web server in DMZ

From 192.168.0.2 wlan browser enter http://192.168.0.10

Good morning Temuri416,

 

If I understand correctly, you have clients connecting to the WLAN of the Hitron modem and clients connecting to the WLAN of the ASUS AC66U?

 

Is the setup you are trying to achieve simply a scenario where you want 2 WLAN access points (for example to cover a large house) or you are trying to completely isolate the 2 networks for some reason?

 

Based on the setup you described, there is no need for a static route in the CGN3 modem. The ASUS router is performing network address translation from the subnet 192.168.2.x to 192.168.0.10. The CGN3 modem only sees traffic coming from that WAN IP for all the clients on the 192.168.2.x subnet.

 

If you disabled NAT entirely on your ASUS router, then it’s a different story and yes you would need a static route which is not supported. Also, be careful as the subnets 192.168.0.0/24, 192.168.1.0/24 and 192.168.2.0/24 are all configured on the Hitron. Although the 2nd and 3rd subnets are used for a second and third SSID that are disabled by default, it may lead to strange behavior.

 

Now if you simply want to extend the coverage area with a second access point, what you can do is remove the WAN IP on your ASUS router (or put it in DHCP mode), assign LAN IP to something like 192.168.0.5 and connect the Hitron CGN3 to a LAN port of the ASUS router (instead of a WAN port). That way you will extend the 192.168.0.0/24 subnet over both the Hitron and ASUS WLANs.
