I live in a shotgun style house and thus am required to have to wireless routers to reach every room.
- The first router is in my roommate's room and has an IP address of 192.168.1.1 with a DHCP pool of 192.168.1.2-192.168.1.150.
- I have the first router set to use Google's DNS servers (184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11).
- I am currently cascading my second router (ethernet runs from LAN on first router to WAN on second router).
- My second router is set to a static IP of 192.168.1.2 (the MAC address of the second router is used to be sure the first router doesn't let any other devices use that IP address), and the gateway and DNS server is set to 192.168.1.1, the IP address of the first router.
Everything seems to be working fine, but I was wondering two things:
Will my second router use Google's DNS servers that are set on the first router if my second router's DNS server IP address is set to the first router's IP address?
Am I understanding correctly, by placing my second router's IP address in the DMZ of the first router, all ports will be forwarded to my second router?
