The problem is to maintain one specific IP address on a computer's Wireless Adapter, which often connects with 3 different Wireless Routers (on same IP range 192.168.1.x). The settings are working without any problem. yet the problem is there, I would ask below after detailing the scenario I am having.
There are 3 routers which I use to connect with all the day. Actually 2 routers and one Wateen's Device with built-in WiFi access point which are 3 in total.
- Say "W1" being Wateen Device with wireless AP is having the device local IP address as "192.168.1.1", and so is added in my laptop as a gateway (shown below in IP Setting image)
- And "R1" being Router-1 is connected externally to Worldcall media converter. "R1" is set with "192.168.1.254" as its local IP address, and also is added in my laptop as a gateway (shown below in IP Setting image)
- Now "R2" being Router-2 is connected again to another Wateen's device. "R2" is also set to have local IP address "192.168.254", which is already in the IP setting on the laptop as shown below...
You may question that why didn't I also set "W1" with the same IP as other two are.. I tried actually but I think, the device called "blade" don't remember its model now, didn't let me set the device with the IP as "192.168.1.254". It seems to be poor validations on the form. On the other hand I don't want to change the IPs on other routers.. That's why I had to put both of the gateways in my laptop's IP settings.
So when specifying IP addresses manually I would also need to specify the DNS addresses to use with the connections. I did as appeared shown below in other image with "DNS" tab opened. I just added two DNS addresses to work when connected with Wateen and other two DNS addresses to work when connected to Worldcall.
::: Problem :::
The settings are just good and working fine on the Laptop. What I need to do is just to re-connect at bottom right corner with one of the Three WiFi profiles (created for each WiFi Router/AP). But the issue is the "Resolution of the addresses" depending on the priority in which the DNS are ordered above. As it works in order when you try to access a host or website so with these settings if I try to access a simple website when connected to Worldcall, it takes time to resolve the website URL. Of course it would take time as it has to lookup in specified order. So it would also cause the same problem when connected to Wateen if the Wateen's DNS addresses are placed later.
The question is.... Is there any thing to do to have it working smoothly just like it works with individual settings for each connection.?
