Calling all Router Gurus:
I have my router behind my uverse gateway in the DMZ...my router has all my port forwards on it for my cameras and stuff.

I want to add an wireless AC asus to the network to replace the current one.

All of my devices dont support n/g and some still have WEP.

I want to use a third router hooked into the asus and somehow be able to still get to those devices.

so the asus would have the public IP xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
and the older wep enabled G router would I assume use an IP off of the internal scheme 172.16.1.1

How do i bridge the older router on the asus and still be able to get to devices on that old router when the asus is doing the port forwarding.

What setup is necessary on each router(asus and older linksys g wep enabled)

thanks for all help and suggestions

I would use a normal router and setup a virtual wifi and set the security for that virtual interface to your WEP requirements for that device.

It is documented here:

This prevent all the extra routers and also the headache of getting everything to talk to each other.

Configure the Second Router as an AP, connected LAN to LAN.
