  • Signal blocker Higgins - Gateway with two cabled routers (1 VPN router) - second router needs to connect with VPN router

    I have a situation in which I would like to have input and assistance. I hope you can help me out.I want to connect one router to another router (VPN Router) and ignore the router/gateway from the internet provider as it is censored and blocks Facetime and Skype.The gear:Internet Provider delivered Wifi Router/GatewayDLink DIR850 with Etisalat Firmware functioning as Gateway (it only provides traffic access to the internet – WiFi is disabled)192.168.1.1 with subnet 255.255.255.0 and ip range 192.168.1.100 and up192.168.1.100 is placed in the DMZ of this routerRouter 1 – connected with cable to LAN port of the DLink gatewayAsus RT-AC5300 with Merlin Firmware with 192.168.2.1 with subnet 255.255.255.0 and ip range 192.168.2.100 and upThe WAN IP setting is 192.168.1.100 (so placing it in the DMZ of the DLink).On this router L2TP VPN Client is configured and running smoothly providing uncensored access to the internet from my location.Router 2 -– connected with cable to LAN port of the DLink gatewayNetGear X6 R8000 configured as access point getting IP Address from the DLink and using the DLink as gateway. (ip is 191.168.1.101 with subnet 255.255.255.0).It is key that the NetGear connects to the Asus as I am in an area where a lot of the internet is censored and simply blocked (e.g. Facetime, Skype). The VPN allows me to use the blocked services). The Netgear firmware does not allow me to configure the VPN (does not support L2TP and that is the only way VPN will work here).Anyone who has an idea how to make this work? Your help is highly appreciated, and I thank you in advance.
