Nice tutorial

Nice tutorial.... by the way I'm working in Qatar as a HR, my accomodation is behind the office and the warehouse before I knew this method I was having internet in my room through the telephone cable (RJ11) connected to the wall jacket.. for this I have to disconnect the office router to connect my accomodation cable ofcause there is another router in my room.... now with this method in the tutorial I don't have to worry about disconnecting the office line and connect the accomodation line....

I ran a cat5e cable to my accomodation to the office and connected to a switch where the gateway is connected....

I will try and post the result.....

thank you again for the tutorial.

Thank you for the extremely well written instructions for connecting two routers on a network. They are the most clearly written I've seen. My problem is now solved thanks to you.
Thank again!

Doesn't work for me. Impossible to disable NAT firewall and whenever I change ip of switch router, it doesn't work at all.

I have never heard of a router where it was impossible to disable the NAT firewall Can I ask what model it is? Is it both router's that you can't disable the firewall on? or just one?

The problem you describe with the changing of the switch IP normally means that the new IP is inside the DCHP pool. Have you changed the DCHP pool as I suggested?

It could also be linked to the fact that the NAT is still switched on.

Ok. I have been struggling over setting my two routers for hours a few days ago. I have 2 routers, one a Belkin F6D4230-4 v2 (default IP address: 192.168.2.1) and the other D-Link DIR-655 (default IP address: 192.168.0.1). I get my internet through a SB5101SURFboard Cable Modem.

So I began to follow your tutorial without a problem till #6. I started having issues trying to get the internet to work. I had to unplug the router and modem (I can't remember if that part is true, but whenever I switched routers or internet stopped working, I had to unplug everything). The real problem came from #7 because I don't know how to disable NAT on the D-Link. Click Here.

I disabled SPI, set both to Endpoint Independent, and even Enabled DMZ and put my gateway router (Belkin) in it.

Anyway, I kept on with the tutorial and it would just not work. I thought I read somewhere online saying that it's impossible to disable NAT firewall on D-Link. I think I read that on D-Link's website, but I can't find it anymore.


Now look at these:
This talks about NAT on my Belkin router.
I saw this when making this post. Would the 2nd Pic work? Would it disable NAT?

Here are a few things I want to do:
1) I want the faster router of the two to be my gateway (I think that's my D-Link, but I don't know).
2) I want to have the SSID to have different names if possible. This way I know which router I am connected to.

Thank you for your help, and if you have any questions, please ask.

Excellent tutorial. Below I am providing an example connection between

Airlive ARM-104 v3 (WAN + LAN + NAT + Firewall)
and
DSL Modems & Gateways - - Technicolor TG585v7 (Internet zone) (WLAN + LAN)

In brackets there are the services that each router is enabled to provide.
I connected the routers together because the airlive doesn't support WLAN.

As described abode you will need an (in most of the cases crossover cable)



Connect the 2 routers together



Configure the 2 routers as below



And you are ready 2 go!
