    The Belkin router needs a route for 192.168.1.0/24 via 192.168.2.5.

    My stupid Belkin router doesn't have an advanced routing feature that
    allows me to do this. Is there anyway to do it from the host? --Plus,
    the computer connected to the Belkin is Windows Xp. (All other
    computers are FreeBSD).

    Thanks for the help Barry. Just had another stupid question that I
    hoped you could help with.

    I tried your suggestion of using route on the host but I must be doing
    somethign wrong.

    I tried (on Windows XP):

    route ADD 192.168.1.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 198.168.2.5

    and it didnt work. Any suggestions?

    First, please don't top-post.

    Is the Linksys router also a firewall and NAT? You need to turn off its
    firewall and NAT features, so it's just a plain router.
