Re: Three router setup, remote DVR not working...

You LAN IP's are all messed up 98.*.*.* is a public IP range, not intended for private LANS

On your first router you have the LAN as 192.168.1.* , make sure the netmask is 255.255.255.0 and that your DHCP range excludes the second routers WAN which you set at 192.168.1.2

On the second routers LAN, that should be either a 192/72/10 range, I would suggest 192.168.2.1 , netmask 255.255.255.0

The Actiontech needs to be configure so is LAN is not either of the above, so try 192.168.3.1 netmask 255.255.255.0

By the way its really unnecessary to daisy-chain three deep on the routers

All you have to do is set the actiontec IP to 192.168.1.3 , turn off DHCP and connect LAN to LAN , Actiontech to the primary routers LAN and it will be a MOCA bridge

The three router configuration is a way to "fake out" the Actiontec to think it is the primary. The only purpose of the middle router is to provide the Actiontec's WAN port with the users WAN IP so that it can report that WAN IP back to VZ.
