Want to be able to see all computers on a WAN


Well I am a little stump here. I figured this out how to do this befor and totally forgot. In my home I have 2 local networks. Now on some of the MS machines I can't see shared printers vice versa with Linux machines. There is some software that I found befor I could setup and allow me to see across a WAN. Can somebody please point me in the right direction

Okay I've done a little research and Now I remember what I need. Correct me if I am wrong but I have 2 networks at home. Now my Linux box is on my Second Network and if I install samba and set it to run as a master browser I should see the WAN. Now will this allow all computer to see eachother through my one Linux box?

Why do you have two networks at home?
This seems unnecessarily complicated (as you seem to have found out already).

Anyway, if you search on connect two networks you'll find some posts like this one that should help you solve your problem.

Well I setup like this because I didn't have enough wire. See I have 2 computer in the living room and it the back bedroom I have 2 computers. I didn't have 2 long wires to connect to the computer in the back room so I ran one long wire and connected a linksys router to route to the other 2 computers so I didn't require as much wire. I would have bought longer wire but times are tough and money is tight. So that is the reason why.

Well Just wanted to add a figured out a solution to get it all on one network. I look up howto cascade routers and figured out that my router had the ability to modify some setting and change ports to get my 2 network on 1 network. So my computer all put from the main dhcp server off the first router.

You could also just use the one router as a switch(shut dhcp off on it) and run everything on one network. The only physical change you would have to make is to move the long wire from the wan port to a lan port(on the router you shut dhcp off).

Then why split it into two subnets?

LOL your miss understanding. My whole network is on a 192.168.0.0/24. same subnet now.

I took the main router in the living room which connects to the internet and setup DHCP. Then I took my ethernet cable and ran it into the LAN port 1 on my router and change the router setting from gateway to router and disable dhcp in my 2nd router. So now it as if I was connected to the main router.
