Port Forwarding -> 2nd modem / router login problem
« on: February 13, 2010, 02:24:15 AM »
Hello everyone!

Firstly I'd like to thank the author for the great usefulness of this site.

I'm having a problem with port forwarding on 2 routers. After reading the info presented on the site it turned out I'm behind 2 routers, which is the cause why I can't forward ports. I followed the instructions to change the settings of the second router by logging on to it, but the ISP prevented me from doing this. The 2nd gateway is not accessible. I put 192.168.1.1 (as that's the 2nd gate) and get the ISPs page. It's understandable for me why they do it, as probably they don't want people to forward ports, but does it mean that I won't be able to do it at all or there is a possibility to bypass it?

Thanks for help!

If you can't get logged in then you might be out of luck.
You need to be able to tell the first router where to send the incoming connection to the 2nd in order for it to work.

Internet ---> Router/Modem 1 ---> Router 2 ---> Computer

Its odd your ISP wont give you the password. You may need to try finding it on google, someone else might of had the problem but got the password :-)
