    Hi,
    I'm trying to configure a dir-100 d-link router to access to a
    192.168.20.0 network from a 192.168.0.0 network. I don't know how to
    attribute an ip address for the wan interface. The ip address for the
    routeur is 192.168.0.51.

    Log into the router and select manual setup, then select "Static IP"
    for the WAN interface. Enter the IP and Netmask that you want, (plus
    gateway IP and DNS, if desired). Does that do it for you?

    thanks. It's ok from a side (from lan to wan), but i can't ping from
    the other. I have to search where the problem is.

    Actually, that's probably normal. The DIR-100, like every NAT router,
    defaults to blocking connection attempts in the WAN->LAN direction. If
    that's not the desired behavior, you can forward specific ports to
    specific hosts on the LAN side of the router, or you can put a
    specific host in the router's DMZ (a misnomer, but think of it as
    simply forwarding ALL ports to that host), or look around in the
    router's config and see if it has a "router" mode versus a "gateway"
    mode. If so, by default it will be in gateway mode, but changing it to
    router mode will make it act the same in both directions and is
    probably what you want.

    Hi,
    I don't need to make a route from WAN to LAN ?

    If I'm reading your initial post correctly, you want to be able to
    access a network on the WAN side of the router from a computer on the
    LAN side of the network. You don't need to specify any routes to do
    that.
