QuestionAddress translation via router Pin
Orjan Westin25-Sep-14 7:04
professionalOrjan Westin25-Sep-14 7:04 
I'm a software engineer with little clue, so please bear with me here.

I have four devices that all have the same, factory-set, IP address, and I need to talk to all of them from the same PC.

The boss said "You should be able to do it with a NAT gateway router with port forwarding", which sounds more like buzzword bingo than any actually useful advice.

I think most cheapo home WiFi routers can do this, but I'm not sure what to look for. It needs to be reasonably cheap, have at least 5 ethernet ports (1 PC, 4 devices), and ideally be configurable so I can assign IP addresses to specific ethernet ports (so regardless of which device is plugged into port 3, it always have the same alias).

Please help?
