Looking for help setting up second network
« on: June 09, 2018, 10:27:37 AM »
Hopefully I can explain what Im trying to accomplish. Attaching pictures.


I have a Pi3 that Im connecting to my home network with through wireless. IP 10.0.0.40 , Netmask 255.255.255.0, Gateway 10.0.0.1. I have Eth0 setup with IP 10.0.1.20, Netmask 255.255.255.0 with no Gateway. I can access this PI fine through wifi. I have cat5 going from this PI into a 6 port switch.


I have a second PI setup with IP 10.0.1.30, Netmask 255.255.255.0, Gateway 10.0.1.20. I have the DNS servers the same as my PI 3. Once I shutdown this PI, plug into the switch and restart, Im unable to access this PI. I have my laptop connected to the same network and also tried plugging into the switch.


Attaching pictures of my settings screen. Hopefully somebody can see what Im missing.


Thank You.

Try a HOST Name without spaces - maybe "FPPM" for FPP Master

A wiring diagram of this showing how Ethernet is connected to both fpps would be helpful. At first glance I am concerned about the gateway address 10.0.1.20. Unless you have routing setup I don’t think it will work as you expect. Try making your mask 255.255.254.0 and use gateway 10.0.0.1 you’ll need to change on every machine on your network, however. On second thought if you are trying to setup two separate network segments then this suggested configuration only expands your network ip range. In other words this would only be a single network segment with double the number of addresses.

If I remember correctly, 2nd and more pi's need to use the 1st pi's ip as their gateways.  You stated .20, try changing 2nd pi gateway to .40 and see what that does for you.

If both interfaces were in the same subnet that might work.

My guess is you forgot to set a static route in your laptop or, alternatively, on your your gateway router.

There is lots of good info about setting up multiple networks on the Pi in this thread

I went to that link and followed instructions on how to add a route on the pc. I was still unable to access the second Pi. It will be a couple weeks before I'm able to try anything else. If I can't get it next time, I'll probably just run out on my network and be done with it.

Thinking out loud....if you are trying to use 2 network so you will not bog down the home network, it will not help.  The same data will be carried thru the same devices and will bog them down the same.
