Asus RT-AC86U met ZYXEL VMG8825-T50

Hi everyone,

 

I’m new in T-Mobile (I have only have internet) and I received the router: VMG8825-T50. I would like to put this router in Bridge mode or DMZ so that I can use my Asus Router (RT-AC86U) as the main router, and the router VMG8825-T50 will be bypassed.

Can someone tell me if it is possible to do this with this router? In case it is not possible, what do you advise me to do?

 

Many thanks!!

Hello @despotars 

Do you have fiber or DSL?

In case of fiber you can connect your Asus directly to the mediaconverter using these settings.

The Zyxel can not be placed in Bridge mode, with DMZ you'll still have double NAT.

For DSL you could look for a DSL modem which can be placed in Bridge mode.

Hi,

 

Thanks for your answer, I currently have DSL.

My idea is to use two asus routers to create a mesh network, and use the RT-AC86U as the main router.

Do you know if the VMG8825-T50 router can open the DMZ for the Asus router? this way it would be my main router.

 

Many Thanks!

For DMZ log in to the Zyxel via 192.168.1.1, log in credentials on the back of your modem.

Go to menu, netwerkinstelling, thuisnetwerk, under LAN configuratie adjust the DHCP pool to 192.168.1.10 - 192.168.1.254 for example and save the settings.

Now go to menu, netwerkinstelling, NAT, DMZ and select under apparaat informatie the IP given to your Asus, all other fields will be filled in automatically.

192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.10 can be used as static ip addresses, give your Asus a static ip address.

 

Hi again! I have more questions:

  • Do you think this is the best configuration I can have to use my Asus router?
  • Do you recommend doing something else?

Many thanks!

My internet works fine, but i can't access my router from outside. Before having tmobile if I could connect using DDNS but not now. Any idea how I can access?

I opened the DMZ port for my Asus router as you told me, but in the Asus roputer configuration, the WAN IP is 192.168.1.6 and not the real public IP, so the DMZ function is not working well. Any ideas to fix this?

Your Zyxel will get the public IP, DMZ works as a portforwarding for all ports to your Asus.

It's correct that your Asus doesn't have a public IP.

So, the router is not working good right? Because in my old house I had TMobile with the Huawei HG659 router and after opening the DMZ to the Asus router, everything worked perfectly, and my Asus router had the Public IP of my house.

I want the same for the ZYXEL router, I want Asus to handle everything without an outer layer, is this possible with the ZYXEL router?

 

Btw, the purpose of opening DMZ to a secondary router is to expose that router to outside (internet in this case) without the main router intervening in anything (firewall, security settings ...)

Hi again, Any idea to help me?
