Don't know of it's even possible, or if it's the right place but here it goes.
- I have a router (on lease, can get something else if need be), TL-WR740N.
- My ISP gives me 3 external/global IPs through 3 specific MAC I can set up in the online configuration page that the ISP provides.
- Before using the router I used the main cable going to my PC to connect, for my host I've used one IP, for a virtual guest in VMWare I was using a different IP, one of the 3 available to me, through adapter binding and specific MAC address.
Now that I had to install WiFi for a device in my home, I'm trying out this router my ISP gave me.
The issue I'm having is that now all devices are grouped to just one external IP address, my PC has a local IP in the form of 192.168.0.100, the wireless device has .101. All go out through the IP that is bound to the MAC of my PC, cloned in the conf. page of the router.
I was hoping to use the 3rd MAC and assign that 3rd IP, my ISP offers, to the wireless device and to keep the external IPs I used to assign to my PC and the virtual guest.
So now I need help with this issue... either on this device if possible or if need be what should I get to set it up the way I've explained?
Edit: Would I be able to achieve this if I put a basic switch in front of the Wireless Access Point router? So, WAN connects to the switch and from it a line goes to the WAP and a separate line to my PC's NIC, my connection bypassing the WAP completely.
