Hi, please help. I want to port forward, but my internet connection gateway is 192.168.88.1 my ip 192.168.88.123. My router address is 192.168.2.1 , if i want to connect to my router I must change my settings to 192.168.2... which means I lose my internet connection but can access the router and vise-verse.

What can I do to do port forwarding, Edimax BR-6204WG router.

Thank you for your help

So you have 2x routers....thus double NAT. Your ISP provided "gateway" is probably a combo modem and router. You don't want one router behind another router.
Either "bridge" the ISP provided gateway so that your router obtains your public IP address. Or if you're using your router for wireless...because the ISP gateway doesn't have wireless, convert your wireless router to just just as an access point.
