hi all

i will be looking at setting up a business bt infinity router over the weekend for a friend.

basically the router needs to forward all traffic to a netgear firewall, the firewall will do all the traffic routing etc

has anyone successfully done this?

i ask as i know how frustrating and limited bt  routers can be!

any good advice appreciated

cheers

Yes, I actually performed this action yesterday.  It can be done.  If you go into the firewall section of this router you enter the IP address of the firewall you wish to forward traffic to and click "choose" (I think it's choose).  Then once this firewall is chosen you can pick the protocols you wish to forward to this firewall.  You can forward all traffic if you choose by selecting the DMZ option.

Hope this helps.

The part that kept me frustrated was clicking the choose button after entering the IP address.  What I was doing was entering the IP address and then clicking on the protocols I wanted to forward.  It just wouldn't work.  You have to click choose after entering the IP address and then it worked.  

And to be more clear I think I went to "settings", "Firewall", "Allow applications, pinholes, DMZ" options.

good luck

really didnt go well :(

did you also setup the router to not route (no Nat etc ) and just use as a bridge?

No, I didn't set it up as a bridge.  I've attached a couple of screenshots.  The first shows the firewall (192.168.190.2) and the protocols chosen to forward.  The second is the firewall status page.

In your case you would want to choose the "Allow all applications (DMZplus mode)" option on the bottom of that page.  This will forward all traffic to your netgear firewall.
