Re: How to manage two WAN and two ROUTER connections

said by bcade:

...Was the port forwarding issue with 2 routers ever resolved?

Both Routers were actually running DD-WRT and had identical Port Forwarding set up for my ReplayTVs. But, only ONE was enabled at a time. And, the Gateways on the ReplayTVs had to changed manually.

If you view your WAN IP as your Street Name, your Port becomes your House Number which cannot be duplicated. With both Routers on one subnet, the Street Name is the same.

IME, the best way to learn how these things work is to start out small, get that working, then gradually add devices.
