Can we setup DMZ by using home router to prevent attack?

Specs: Centos OS 5.5
HI experts,

Currently in my office have a TPlink wireless router (WR1043N), and Dlink 615 router.
Below is my office's network organization.

Internet-->TPLinkRouter(192.168.2.0)-->DlinkRouter(192.168.0.0)

We want to host a demo website but we are afraid our network being attacked. So we wish to implement a DMZ network to hide our internal network from outside.

My question is can i setup a dmz network with the above capabilities by using home routers? Or should i get another type of device like managed switch?

Any reference can suggest?

Thanks a lot

Does the tplink do dmz? If so then do so. You want all of your business pcs on the dlink.

Hi Wanderer,
Yes, both router also have DMZ features...

I connect Router TPlink (Ethernet port) to Dlink Internet port and attached a PC to each router.

Let say PC A is attaced to TP Link router, PC B is attached to Dlink. Even i set PC B is in DMZ in Dlink, PC A is not able to ping PC B.

of course not. that is the way it should be.
pcA has the tplink for gateway not the dlink which is why it can't ping.
this is what you want if you want to protect the business pc off the dlink

why do you think I said all the business machines need to be off the dlink?
