I recently purchased a Linksys RV042, hoping to make use of the DMZ port to seperate a Wireless/guest network.
I have a single, dynamic IP on the WAN, and do not need external access to the DMZ.
With other routers I have used, a DMZ port can be used to host an 'insecure' network, and will route/NAT its data out to the WAN. In this way, I have secured a private 'green' network from a public 'orange' network, whilst still allowing internet access for both.
The RV042 doesn't seem to support this? The DMZ port does allow setting a Subnet, which I have set to the 'private' IP range I want to use for the Wireless 'public' segment. I can ping the IP (after allowing it in the firewall rules) but I cannot route past that point (i.e. cannot ping external hosts).
Do I assume correctly that the RV042 cannot route/NAT private IPsin the DMZ space?
If so, why not? Are there plans to enable this in future Firmware?
I expected to be able to use the DMZ port as a DMZ without the need for multiple public IPs, making use of NAT.
Model: Linksys RV042
WAN: Dynamic Public IP
