multiple routers
« on: February 13, 2014, 11:19:42 PM »
Hello,the simple port forwarding software detects 3 routers:
 Possible 1st Router: 192.168.1.1
Possible 2nd Router: 192.168.0.1
Possible 3rd Router: 192.168.2.1

I only recognize router(192.168.1.1) which is my netgear WNR2200 wireless router. The other 2 routers I do not know
who they are nor do I have login access to them, they are not part of my network.
How can I port forward in that case?
thank you.

The program does a trace route and those IPs are showing up on the network, so log into your netgear and go to the internet setup page, there you will see what WAN Ip it has.

Does it match the IP on this page?

If it doesnt then you are behind another router at least. The modem from your ISP can be a router as well.

But if you are in a apartment building and have shared internet access then you are behind their routers, which means if you cant log into those other routers then you wont be able to port forward. :wink:

Yes, I am on an apartment block with shared internet. Subscribing to a seperate ISP or use a VPN service
could be a solution to the problem? thank you.

Most VPNs still need port forwarding, some dont though like hamci or what ever it is called lol

Otherwise getting your own service would be best because then you would have control over it and you wont be sharing the same connection with everyone else. :wink:
