There are 2 router let it be X and Y. For X I have registered on ddns and got a hostname for the router and applied that for remote management. In Y router I have applied the fixed public IP of router X as a DNS server. When I am getting connected to router Y I am able to download(though at a very low speed) but web pages are not opeaning.

  • You need to give us more detail. For instance, what router models and configurations? – Ron Maupin Dec 28 '15 at 6:46

I don't understand why you set X as the DNS of Y? The DNS is only used to resolve the hostname<->ip pair.

Is there a particular reason why you want X to be the DNS of Y or it is the same for you? Because if it is the same, you could set X as the gateway of Y and use a public DNS for Y; for instance the Google DNSs ( or or Open Dns ( or

  • If i set X's gateway in Y will it redirect the whole traffic? – ashish Dec 28 '15 at 13:56
  • You can set the IP of X as the gateway of Y and then the whole traffic will go through X because at that point all the packets that don't belong to the Y private subnet will be redirected to the ateway (in this example X). Anyway it is not really clear what you are trying to do. – FancyPants Dec 28 '15 at 14:43
  • actually I'm trying to put malicious DNS server in Y router so that it gets redirected to my malacious page. And a question to your above answer that I should put public IP of router X in router Y and public IP gets changing.How to solve that? – ashish Dec 28 '15 at 17:12
