Hope you guys can help me out, I'm clueless about networks. So, I have two routers. The ISP provided router, a crappy Thomson 784n connected through powerline to a TP-Link WDR-4300 working as a switch and Wi-Fi AP (LAN to LAN)
I'm trying to access my USB HDD through FTP using a dynip provided by my ISP and it simply won't work.
I have port 21 forwarded to the WDR-4300 IP, and I have access using the WDR4300 IP, even when connected directly to the Thomson 784n, but I can't connect through my public IP. I'm missing something here, anyone knows?
Also, is having the WDR4300 working as a switch the right option? I have everything (DHCP, Firewall, NAT) on the WDR4300 disabled. Should NAT be enabled, for example? Doesn't seem to make a difference, the Thomson 784n is handling everything, right? A LAN to WAN connection should only be used if the WDR4300 was the only AP, correct?)
