okay i have 2 seprate connections going to each computer in my house
one is for lan and the other is for internet aka wan

so like the lan has its own router and the wan has its own router

lets do a diagram

Lan side

Router -> computer
-> server 1
-> server 2
-> server 3

wan side

Modem -> router
router-> computer
-> server 1
-> server 2
-> server 3


Now the problem is when i try to get onto the internet on the computer it does not connect to the internet. It does see shared files but it will not connect to it. keeps on asking for a password. but i dont know why...

How are you IP addresses being issued, are you putting them in statically, or are you using DHCP?

Make sure you don't have any conflicting IP addresses, are you able to ping the routers from your computer?

i dont think its a ip.
the internal lan is all static
and the WAN is all dhcp

so all the local stuff is static
and all the internet stuff is dhcp

i am able to ping both routers from my computer and all the servers but what i dont understand is the server cannot ping the computer but can ping everything else.

okay figured it out...

For thoes that want to do this

your internet connection let it use dhcp or static for example

192.168.0.1 -> modem (internet)
192.168.1.1 -> router

192.168.1.2 ->computer
255.255.255.0 -> subnet
192.168.1.1 -> gateway
192.168.0.1 -> dns

now on the Lan card or connection

192.168.2.2 -> computer
255.255.255.0 -> subnet


and it works..

I dont understand why but it works. Maybe one of the guru guys/gals will explain more.

Also still lie the issue of i cannot access the shared files that are on the server. It keeps asking me for a username and password. Is there anyway to turn that off?

Not sure what you actually were doing the first time with your subnetting, and your setup is a little different than anything I've come upon. Normally when dealing with several routers and subnets, I think I'd do something along the lines of this: http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Li ... tic_Routes

In terms of accessing the shared files, remember on shares, there are two sets of permissions -- shared permissions, and security permissions. Both will apply to shares, and the more restrictive of the two will take priority. So you can't just give full access to the shared permissions, without also doing the same with the security permissions. Follow me? So you need to go through all your users and set both permissions the way you would like them to be.

i had set up the shared and security for that drive to be open for all on the network but i am still not able to access it with out a username and password
its set to everyone.

From server to server can see it but thats under the same login

if the login from say my laptop is bob and pass is bob3 it wont let me connect to the files on the server due to my username and pass is different. like i said the permissions is set to everyone on both security and sharing.

If your servers are on a domain and your laptop isn't you'll need to use a domain account to access the shares, not your laptop account. The domain won't recognize those credentials. so your authentication would be like: domain\administrator | pass

No the servers are not on a domain.

Then you still need to use a user that's on the server, so you need to create a user on the server that you would use to access the shares and you authenticate by servername\shareuser | pass

Thank you for your help.
