I'm sorry if this has been answered before; I tried looking but couldn't find a solution. I'll try and explain as clearly as I can.
I've recently purchased a Rogers Mobile Rocket Hub and it's causing issues with FTP connectivity. Here is our network layout:
Rocket Hub (gives 192.168.1.1 as LAN IP)
Buffalo Wireless Router (192.168.1.2, gives 192.168.0.1 as LAN IP)
- Comp 1 (192.168.0.3 --- this device has FTP)
- Comp 2 (192.168.0.4)
- Comp 3 (192.168.0.5)
- Etc. etc.
Rocket Hub LAN port 2 connects to Buffalo Router WAN port
Normally I would prefer to set the Rocket Hub in bridge mode but that isn't possible. That would not be so much of a problem except that it also cannot assign IP addresses based on MAC addresses...which is what I currently have the Buffalo router doing.
What is the best way to avoid problems with this setup?
------- EDIT -------
OK, so thanks to your help things are working now! Here's the new setup:
DHCP turned off
LAN IP = 192.168.0.254
Port forwarding rules set
LAN port connected to LAN port of Buffalo Router
DHCP turned on (serving addresses from .2 > .221)
WAN IP determined automatically
LAN IP = 192.168.0.1
Port forwarding rules not set as they aren't needed (don't know why that is...)
Hooked up to Buffalo Router...gateway, ip all automatically determined via DHCP
