static route on local ethernet ports on HG659

Hi,

 

Just wondering is there anyway that I can set up an static route on my local ethernet port? As the router doesn't allow me to add a static route for interface onnet_ethernet with following message. 

 

  1. Interface type must be route

 

Below is the reason why I would like to set up the static route, please give any suggestion if there might be any alternative ways can be achieved.

As shown in the following topology of my network, I have a couple of powerline extenders, which can only be working like a layer 3 router (rather than a simple layer 2 switch) which causes an extra subnet (192.168.0.1/24) in my LAN (192.168.1.1/24). And my only purpose is to make device A in lan of HG659 can connect to device B or C in the subnet eaiser. 

 

   +--------------------+
   |HG659 192.168.1.0/24|
   +--------------------+
          |
          |
          |     +-----> device A (e.g. 192.168.1.2)
          +-----+
                |      +------------------+        +---> device B (e.g. 192.168.0.2)
                +----->|Powerline Extender|--------+
                       |192.168.1.254/32  |        +---> device C (e.g. 192.168.0.3)
                       |192.168.0.0/24    |
                       +------------------+

So far, I can add a static route on device A (e.g. route add 192.168.0.1/24 via 192.168.1.254) to do the job, and it works perfectly. But it would still be better if the static route can be set on HG659 so that every single equipment in subnet of 192.168.1.1/24 can get access to the subnet 192.168.0.1/24.

 

Thank you very much!
