Re: linking "two" home networks with different IP ranges
Thanks for the replies, everyone.

I think I've found part of the problem: the network "thinks" that it's a WAN. Several of our routers allow the user to set both LAN and WAN IP addresses, and I can only access their web interfaces from the external IP unless I connect my laptop directly to the routher (or through a switch). In reality, a home network is supposed to be a LAN.

So far, I've managed to configure my NetGear router so that it can be accessed from our main network, but I still can't ping the 192.168.101.x devices. I've replaced the router with a switch as Inanimate Carbon Rod suggested, but it doesn't seem to work. In the worst case, I can simply change the printer's IP to 192.168.1.x, but would mean I would have to reconfigure all of our computers to use the new IP.
