    Disable NAT in WR1043ND

    Region : Spain

    Model : TL-WR1043ND

    Hardware Version : V1

    Firmware Version : V1

    ISP :


    After some investigation I think the solution to the problem I describe below is that NAT needs to be disabled in the WR1043ND.

    I believe it is not possible in this router, but perhaps I am wrong (or I am wrong about the solution or both :-)

    Is there a way to disable NAT?

    Here's the description of the problem in case you experts can give me a hand:

    I have an ASUS N55U with the LAN address 198.162.1.1 In that LAN I have TP-Link TL-WR1043ND router with the address 198.162.1.89 in the WAN port. The LAN port in the TP-Link has 198.162.10.1
    Devices connected to the 198.162.10.X TP-Link network can access those in the 198.162.1.X network, but not the other way around. Equipment in that network can see the 1.89 port but not the 10.1 or any other device in the 10.X network.
    I have a static route in the N55U for 198.162.10.0 mask 255.255.255.0 pointing to 198.162.1.89.

    I tried with or without the static route, changing the mask to 255.255.0.0, giving metric a 0 or a 3, with and withou firewall, using the real address of a device in the .10 network instead of a "0" and it just won't work.

    A tracert to 198.162.10.1 from a PC in the 198.162.1.X reaches the N55U 198.162.1.1 port but doesn't go beyond that.

    Thanks for any help!

    This router cannot disable NAT,so the wan IP should in the same subnet with 192.168.1.1.

    Thanks Chrome, actually the WAN port in the TP-link is in that same subnet (192.168.1.89). It is the LAN port that is in the 192.168.10.X network. Devices in the 10.X network see the 1.X network, but not the other way around.
