Automatic Route Table Entries
I've got the following setup working nicely, with my linux laptop working as a brilliant wireless bridge while keeping my subnetwork with its own dhcp and dns separate from the rest of the network:
Scoping around the internets, I came across http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ICMP_Ro...overy_Protocol which seems to do what I've wanted - however I can't get it to work. I'm using icmpush on the laptop to create packets for prototyping my configuration, but nothing seems to actually change how e.g. my symbian phone can absolutely not see 192.168.0.0.
One thing I am looking at with interest is how routers (e.g. my laptop) are meant to add themselves to the 240.0.0.2 multicast group - do I need to configure this before things will start to route through it automatically?
Other than that I'm out of ideas, so alternate plans for automatic routes from 192.168.1.0 to 192.168.0.0 are welcome.
I should also mention that I have no access to the wifi router so I can't add static routes there. :(
The above setup is at the limits of my ability at the moment - obviously expanding these limits is OK but just keep in mind I'm no network engineer. :)
Is your phone configured to use router discovery ? ... probably not likely
Just configure the default router with the route, as well as sending the traffic to your laptop it will use ICMP redirect to inform the hosts to use the laptop.
On a point of terminology, your laptop is not a wireless bridge, it is a router.
