Re: can't access 2nd rb750g via winbox

Hi thanks for the reply. I can ping anything from anywhere. I just can't get into the second router. Of course that's the private sub. I can't even get to the Public IP I have on the router. I shouldn't have to port forward anything should I? 2 routers behind one modem? I guess one would think a por...

Re: remote access

I'm having exact same problem except with 2nd router behind modem.
I can ping it but can't access the IP or domain or winbox or anything.
It's not the ISP.

It almost sounds like your ISP isn't routing to the 2nd address properly. Have you tried a traceroute to see where the packets are going? I think you may have a point.
