My current configuration is a AM200 configured in gateway operation mode which is responsible for establishing my internet connection via PPPOE (IP-192.168.253.1). This works no problem if I connect a PC to this setup. Now I add my WRV200 to the configuration, by connection the WRV200’s WAN port to the Ethernet Port in the AM200. I configure the WAN interface on the WRV200 as a fixed IP with the address of 192.168.253.2. The LAN on the WRV200 is then configured as 192.168.254.1. All of this works if the WRV200 runs in gateway mode. Since this creates a double NAT I wanted to change the WRV200 to run in router mode. Once I make this change (and added a static route on the AM200 for the 192.168.254.0 network) all the networks can see each other and I can ping the internet no problem, except that nothing else works to the internet, browsing SMTP etc. Change it back to gateway and everything works.
Surely this must be possible on the WRV200, I’m a certified Cisco engineer so I know how IP worksJ. Please advise on how this configuration can be achieved.
Basically I want the am200 to run as a gateway, the wrv200 as a router and vpn server. The reason why I want connectivity to the am200 is so that I can manage it via SNMP and the web interface.
Kind regards, Emil
