Port forwarding issue through multiple routers.

by ne0rotic / September 19, 2014 11:30 PM PDT

I have a complex network that I'm trying to port forward through for an xbox one and 360. If you've read my other post this is a second instance.

My network:
Modem----> linksys N router(1 hardwired PC)---(wifi over a 500 ft gap between buildings)--> trend net bridge)----> 2nd linksys router (1 PC HW, 2 Macs Wifi, 1 Xbox HW/Wifi).

My issue:
I would like to port forward for the xbox in the second building to have a better xbox live experience. I find that if I make them separate networks (R1: and R2:, it won't allow me to port forward).

I rarely have access to PC1 in building 1. So, I have to make changed with Mac1 in the second building. So, if I make them on the same network (R1: and R2: it will not allow me to access the configuration page for either router anymore.
