Is there any way to set a router to simply redirect all traffic to another wan IP address? For example, I have a static wan ip of and I want to forward all traffic to

This has nothing to do with port forwarding. Basically, we are moving static ips and this scenario is similar to a temporary change of address scenario, where we want all mail to temporarily forward to another address for a couple days.

Short answer: Yes.

Longer answer: What kind of router are you using? If you're using a Cisco router you may be able to use Policy Based Routing, Cisco gives a few examples.

You can set up a static route in the routing table on a Cradlepoint MBR95, Page 65 of the PDF Manual gives screenshots and instructions.
