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?

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.

said by bcade: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.
