I'm having a modem with a built-in router, that connects to the internet through the 4g-network (productname:
To this modem, I have a router connected in Lan1 (productname:
ZyXEL). So my Huawai gets the internet and passes it on to my ZyXEL. I'm connected to the wireless-LAN on the ZyXEL. I'm using this setup, since the wireless-signal on the ZyXEL is stronger than on the Huawai (and the ZyXEL can't connect to the internet).
I have an IP-camera connected to the ZyXEL, that I would like to be able to access from an external IP-address. I've Googled around, and it looks like, that I should do a port-forwarding to the given IP-address, in the router. I assume, that I have to do it in the Huawai-router, since that's the most-outer point of my network. However... I can access my Huawai-router by going to a browser and going to this IP:
But I can access my ZyXEL-router by going to a browser and going to this IP:
I can see that my own IP is 10.0.0.35 (which makes sense, since I'm connected to the ZyXEL-router.
So my questions are this:
1) Can I change the IP of the ZyXEL-router to be 192.168.1.2, so that the two routers are in the same IP-range? Or would that reck something?
2) Would it be better (and possible), if I just do a port-forward from my Huawai-router to the IP-cameras IP (which is 10.0.0.33, since that is connected to the ZyXEL). I mean, is that possible, since it's a different IP-range, or am I getting this all wrong?
3) Or am I trying to do something idiotic this way, by having two routers? Would it be better to simply throw the ZyXEL-router out, live with 2 bars instead of 4 and then set it all up with a single router?
4) And how do I know, which port it would be smart to do the forwarding from. I can find several articles on Google, that I should choose the port that I forward with caution - but I can find nothing about, which one(s) to choose?
