Re: How to manage two WAN and two ROUTER connections

Thanks. I'm reading now. This maybe what I'm looking for. Was the port forwarding issue with 2 routers ever resolved?

Well its been awhile, but port forwarding capability was as you may have noted, was clarified near the end of the thread (what is possible).
By the way the ASUS N56U is a powerhouse consumer router. They put the switch architecture and nat architecture in hardware units separate from the CPU so its fast and can handle a gazillion connections.

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.
