Ok I have made a thread already, but it lost its momentum and I need a seperate thread just for this problem.
I have narrowed it down to ports not forwarding correctly, or/and the external IP won’t show up, only internal.
My setup looks like this:
(Ignore the crude imagery)
Anyways I have an Actiontec m1000 router/modem from Qwest which has to be plugged into our Netgear WGU624 because we have like 4 computers running. I know how to create static IPs and I have forwarded the necessary ports on the Netgear router. The qwest router is a different story. It has port forwarding and static ips too, as well as DMZ.
Qwest Router IP : 192.168.0.1
Netgear Gateway IP: 192.168.1.1
Server IP: 192.168.1.2 (have tried static 192.168.1.5 and 192.168.1.181)
When I try to forward on the qwest router, it says the IP isn’t valid, and I guess it has something to do with the .0.1 part. So I changed my changed my netgear to 0.2
Then I put the starting ip on the netgear from 192.168.0.3 to 192.168.0.180 for the DHCP server. So both routers had the same .0 part, so I forwarded ports on both, and put a static ip on the netgear.
Should work right? Wrong, my internet wouldn’t connect right, and I couldn’t access the qwest router, it wouldn’t work right.
So I may not have explained this all right, but I need a guru to solve this for me, I racked my brain for days on it. I know I should get it, and it is probably something obviously simple, but I can’t get it.
Also if you need me to get other info just ask, I can also put screenshots in.
