    I have two WRT54G routers sharing a single internet connection across a Wifi link of about ¼ mile. Following directions received elsewhere I am able to browse the internet from both locations. For the purpose of my questions I will illustrate my installation. For the purpose the illustration HOME refers to the network connected to the internet and REMOTE refers to the network linked to the HOME network via Wifi.

    A basic view of the setup looks something like this

    x.x.x.x 192.168.2.X 192.168.1.X

    From the remote network I can view and change the web interface setting for the REMOTE router @, the HOME router @ and the MODEM @

    I can not see the remote network from machines on the home network or the REMOTE router at

    I believe sub-netting the HOME and REMOTE networks is prudent to minimize LAN traffic from the busy REMOTE network being broadcast over the Wifi link. I need to be able to direct traffic (using the Application & Gaming port forwarding) from the internet and machines on the HOME network to the REMOTE network when required. Specifically, I have a web server @ that should receive any inbound port 80 traffic from the internet.

    I have made attempts at setting the Advanced Routing setting with no success. I need directions, or links to directions or how this could be accomplished. I also use a remote administration program from the HOME network and the Internet to manage machines on the REMOTE network that will no longer work. When the REMOTE network had its own DSL with port forwarding set up traffic was moving correctly.

    I would like to be able to set up a forward like Start 80 – End 80 – Protocol Both – IP on whichever router is correct (presumabably the HOME router) and have WAN based port 80 request go to IP

    I think if I could connect to a 192.168.1.X machine from the 192.168.2.X network the problem would be solved.

    Thanks for any prudent advice.
