I don't want two routers.

The only way for me to connect to the internet is with wi-fi.  There are 
three levels of NAT:

1.)  the router I connect to with wi-fi.

2.)  I connect with an iogear device:


This device gives an IP address with DHCP to my netgear router.  The 
iogear gizmo is like a bridge, the marketing on the box calls it an 

3.) my netgear router uses DHCP to get an IP address from the iogear 

The two computers:

tleilax is 192.168.2  -- the router will always give it this address

doge uses DHCP to get its IP address.

For everything which I need, everything is in 192.168.1.x range:  the 
netgear router, tleilax and doge.

For the purposes of this thread, the iogear device and everything above 
to the cloud is immaterial, in that I'm not trying to make SIP 
connections outside of the LAN.

Hope that's clear.  While it's complex, it's no more complex than 
necessary -- it's just the only way to get a connection.
