I'm having a few issues with our network setup at the moment, mainly with forwarding ports for use with P2P applications.

Our setup at the moment is using a Netcomm NB1300 modem/router, connected to a Belkin Wireless G router. We have 3 computers in the house, 2 of them currently connected to the Belkin router via wired connections, the other using wireless. General internet access is running fine with our current setup to all computers connected. I have no problem forwarding ports when I take the Belkin router out of the equation, but as soon as it's plugged back in, the ports are closed. I've tried port forwarding using setup interfaces for both the modem/router and router.

Can anyone help me with this problem? Sorry if it sounds confusing. I tried explaining it the best I could.

p.s- I know this setup isn't the ideal one, but the modem/router came free with our broadband plan, and we added the Belkin router when we moved into a bigger house.

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!
