[AB] Connect another router behind Telus Actiontec for OpenDNS I have Telus Optik TV and Internet service. Telus set me up with an Actiontec V1000H router. However, because I want to use OpenDNS but can't change the DNS settings on the telus router, I put a 2nd router (Linksys E4200v2) behind the telus router - i.e., I ran an ethernet cable from one of the LAN ports on the telus router to the WAN port on the Linksys. I then connected my printer and two computers to the Linksys, but left my telus digital set top box connected to a LAN port on the telus router.
Everything - TV, wired computers, wireless devices - works fine!
The only question I have is "should I be doing anything else?" I've heard that I could have double NAT issues, that I should put the linksys in the telus router's DMZ, etc. (see the quote below that I found on the internet) - but, if everything seems to be working, I shouldn't have to do anything - right?
Here's the quote I found on the internet: "You MUST use the Actiontec with Optik. You can place a router of your choosing behind it if you choose, but make sure the other router you chose is on a different address scheme than the 192.168.1.0-254 that the Actiontec uses or you'll be double NATed and have issues. DMZ your router in the Actiontec and then turn off the Actiontecs wifi."
