I hope this is the right place to post...
I have spent a number of weeks researching this and cannot seem to find an answer, and would appreciate some advice on how to do, and potentially some suggestions of suitable routers (the smaller the better, if I can use one of the tiny ones aimed at creating mobile wireless hotspots with just a WAN port that would be great?).
Basically I want a number of wireless devices to connect to a router, and the router port forward wach address in the subnet to a port on the router's WAN IP, i.e. 192.168.0.xxx:80 to 192.168.1.1:10xxx
And then the wireless router's WAN port be connected to the ethernet of the PC so that the single PC can communicate with each of the devices using a single IP address and varying port numbers.
I would like to setup the port forwarding in advance of connecting the devices. The reasons for this is so that only a single port is accessible on each of the devices, and that only a single IP address is used to talk to each of the devices.
Is it possible to do? Would someone be able to give me a rough overview how to achieve this? And finally, any suggestions upon suitable small routers? (the smaller the better - I only need the WAN port). For example TP-Link's TL-WR802N looks like a good candidate though I would like to customise the login page of the router so that the user cannot see its a TL-WR802N, if you get what I mean.
I am happy to flash OpenWRT or something if needs be but as I have been out of the networking game for a while, suggestions upon modern hardware choices would be much appreciated.
Many thanks in advance :-)
