I upgraded to a ZyXel USG20 and I'm having a hard time configuring all my additional hubs. All I want to do is have one big LAN with three hubs/switches connected. I have a wireless switch that I can connect to with my phone, but I can't see it from my PC that's connected to the ZyXel directly.
I've configured all 4 ports to be LAN1
The wireless switch configures itself as 192.168.2.1 but I can't ping it or see it from my PC, but my phone can get to it via wifi connection.
I think I need to create a bridge, but that sounds counter-intuitive since all ports are set up for LAN1.
My PC and other devices connected directly to the USG20 access the internet just fine.
How can I configure my USG20 so that everything plugged into it are on the same network?

What address range do you want for your subnet? The Zywall default range is 192.168.1.0 to 192.168.1. 255. Its default IP address is 192.168.1.1. However, you can change these to almost anything you want such as 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.3.255 or 192.168.2.0 to 192.168.2.255. Both of my examples include 192.168.2.1. The first and last addresses in each range are reserved by TCP/IP rules and the Zywall must have one address within the range. Note that a range such as 192.168.1.0 to 192.168.2.255 is not permitted. -- Jim Anderson
reply to rabel If I correctly understand what you're trying to do the easiest way would be to go to Configuration -> Network -> Interface -> WLAN; click on your wlan interface (in my case wlan-1-1) and choose to edit it. In the window switch zone from WLAN to LAN1 (or whatever zone you want the WLAN to be on). Be sure to change any applicable DHCP settings so WLAN and LAN assignments don't cross and are in the same subnet.
Beware, though, that this will allow anyone full access to your wired LAN (and vice versa) when they connect wirelessly...
