I am in China, and I am trying to setup two wireless networks on the same internet connection. One is a regular WIFI with a Chinese IP. The second should be using a VPN connected to the USA to access blocked and censored sites. For the VPN to work the router must be in gateway mode. If I remove gateway 1 and connect gateway 2 directly to the internet, everything including the VPN works fine.
So I need the following setup
internet---------[gateway 1]----192.168.1.2-----[gateway 2]------local network
The first wireless network works just fine. I then connect gateway 2 to gateway 1 thru cable. Gateway 2 is a DDWRT router with a normal DHCP setup, and the wan port correctly displays 192.168.1.2. If I connect to the second wireless network, I can not ping ex. 184.108.40.206.
On my laptop, I have manually tried to set the gateway IP to both 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2, but I still have no access to the outside world.
Any idea? thanks!
