How to keep Ext IP for a PC, after WiFi router is installed

There is a PC (server) which has the ISP connection, and the ISP assigned to that connection an external static IP.

Now I want to install WiFi Router, so entry point from ISP with its static IP will be taken by that router.

My question is: how to connect that router in a way, when the server PC is still keeping the initial entry point with static IP?

Well, my question is for network architecturer and experienced network admins.. Thanks

Since it's a server, why not

Place it's new LAN IP into the DMZ?

As you must have technical background and staff to run a server, my answer would not need expansion.

RDP?

Thank you for the hint...
Does it open all ports to the "front line" of the connection (inclusing RDP.. POP.. SMTP.. and others)
????

Sorry

But what DMZ does is on the web. I'll opt out of duplicating the web here. Running a server gave me the impression your staff has basic skills and use of search engines.

It's like you asked me which switch to throw and then wanted to dive into atomic power plant design and theory. Here this is a simple entry/setting and we are done.

Then that's the solution.

It's just a setting and should just work short of getting another IP.

Unfortunately the router I've got ASUS EA-AC87 doesn't have DMZ option (((
And after firmware update not even one DMZ still visible on the admin page Happy
Will have to replace it now..

That AC87 is not a router.

In reply to: DMZ

This is a "5 GHz Wireless-AC 1800 Media Bridge/ Access Point."

Where is the router you were asking about in your top post?

ASUS RT-AC68U

EA-AC87 was suggested by PC shop consultant Happy

You have two IP addresses from the ISP?

In reply to: How to keep Ext IP for a PC, after WiFi router is installed

If so, should have two lines available from them too.

2-nd IP

No, just one.

DMZ to router 2 from a LAN port at the first router.
