2 home routers peggy back issue

Specs: WinXP, 2GB
Hi guys, there is one problem I need to help to resolve here is the situation;

I have one Bell provided modem (built-in router) and one tp-link wireless router connected together. The reason doing this because Bell router has no port-forwarded feature. the bell one use 192.168.2.0/24 and tp-link use 192.168.1.0/24. The WAN port of tp-link is connected to bell's lan port so that tp-link acquire WAN IP from bell's DHCP. Now 2 PCs (1 static IP & 1 DHCP) connected to tp-link router have no problem access Internet. the PC using static IP is for security CCTV purpose so that I can remote login to view the camera. The cctv application does use the port TCP 9091 & 9092 & 80 listening.
However, I set port-forwarding on tp-link router and try to test it from outside (assume the public IP is 123.123.123.123) so that I typed http://123.123.123.123:9091. But it failed and no responding. Did I do anything setting wrong?

normally you would use the wan port of the tp router.

after all their is no forwarding on the bell right?

not sure you can connect to private wan ip, I have never tried it. Shame you couldn't put the bell into bridge mode so the tp could get the public wan ip.

I cannot switch bell router as secondary one cos no port-forwarding feature as I mentioned before. In addition, the DSL phone line attached to Bell router as well.
