You don't specify which port connects to which (ie: LAN port on Aztec to LAN port on Linksys or LAN port on Aztec to WAN port on Linksys) so all I can tell you is the linksys won't likely work, or anything plugged into it at this point in time. Click on my name above and once the page loads, look for my "how-to" on adding a second router. It show's both scenarios for connecting.

Decide on which scenario you wish to use and then set it up according to my guide. The LAN port to LAN port is easiest.

I realise i'm already using configuration same as your version 2. The problem now is i cant access the port forwarding i've open..Now I try a direct connection to my router 1 and i still cant access port via my internet ip .
Two scenarios not working:

Scenario 1

Internet (→ Adsl Router/Modem port forwarding tcp 5555 or dmz → Laptop ( on windows ( webserver 5555 ) firewall disabled - cannot access but

Scenario 2

Internet (→ Adsl Router/Modem port forwarding tcp 5555 or dmz →Linksys wrg54 (WAN) ( dmz ) → Laptop ( on windows ( webserver 5555 ) firewall disabled - cannot access and but

I am however able to connect to internet on router 1 or router 2 via wireless without problems .. Anyone could help?

Experts please help me !

If you use scenario 1 (LAN port to LAN port) this simplifies port forwarding as you only have to do it on the router connected to the internet.

If you use scenario 2 (LAN port to WAN port) then you would need to create the same port forward on both routers.

It looks to me like you have the forward setup correctly. Typically they are as follows:

port # forwarded to

Where is the internal (LAN) IP of the target PC/server.

When a user wishes to connect remotely, they have to type in the external (internet) IP of your router that is connected to the internet and the rest should be handled automatically by the forward.

For example, I have my home XP Pro PC setup to accept incoming RDC sessions. On my SOHO router, I forwarded port 3389 (RDC) to (IP of my XP Pro PC). To connect, I open RDC on another computer and type in my external IP address and click connect and it works.

If your forward isn't working but all clients can get on the internet, then check the port forward again. You must not have created it correctly.

This is frustrating.. I realise my linksys port forwarding is working but not my internet modem / router's port forwarding... Could it be wrong i forwarded to?
Internet modem / router → forward 5555 to router 2's ip → forward 5555 to
Trying connect internet external ip 5555 doesn't work but 5555 works..
Could it be my external ip? When i'm google my ip from whatismyip website display my isp has a proxy ip...

Aztech broadband gateway is [though you said .2 was your gateway] pc connected via wireless to linksys)
Linksys wrg54 (WAN)

From the variety of ips I will try to construct an approach.

In the astech router with wan interface you forward port 5555 to the static ip you assigned to the linksys router

Then, in the linksys, you forward port 5555 to the pcs ip of

This should allow you from a internet location to type and reach your pc.

Be aware of the difference of https and http. Number of routers I have worked with specify one or the other. It needs to be uniform between the two routers.
