Just checking the purpose of accessing Belkin N600 router through internet

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can access router settings from any location.
Expert:  arsufi replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for your reply..

We need to Enable port forwarding for Belkin N600 router on primary router for your purpose..

This is what we have to do

1: Login to Primary router

2: Find port forwarding section and enable port forwarding

Internal Server IP address should be Belkin N600 ip address..

Enter port number used by Belkin N600 remote session

You can set the same port number for Internal and External port

Save settings

3: Now check if you access Belkin N600 router using Public IP Address

Please update status.

If you are not good to do these settings. I will do for you by establishing a remote session.

For that please let me know when you are back...

Regards,

Fiyaz

Thanks for your reply Fiyaz.
That sounds a little more involved than I had hoped. However, I definitely want to figure it out.
I will need to get into the settings and see if I can find what you're referring to. What might that section of the settings be called?
I will need to talk more when I get a chance to try your suggestions which may be a couple days. Will you still be available?
Thank you, Ken

Turns out my routers are behind a "Comcast Business Gateway" which I gather is essentially another router/firewall. I was able to log in but got kind of lost then.So, I have the Belkin N600 which is the one I need to access remotely, connected to a Linksys N750 (model EA3500), which in turn is connected to the Comcast modem. Can you tell me, in as much detail as possible, what I need to do. I may be able to follow your instructions. If not, I'll probably need to call you when I'm sitting in front of the computer for more detail.Should I go ahead and rate your service or should I wait till we are done?Thanks, Ken

Expert:  arsufi replied 1 year ago.

Just one thing:

Are you able to connect wifi network without connecting USB cable to computer

Expert:  arsufi replied 1 year ago.

(No issues, we will continue when you are back)

Not sure what you mean by that. I can connect to the router wirelessly but the routers are all connected by ethernet cable.
