Hey guys - I’ve spent hours trying to figure this out. I have two beryl routers - one has been configured as a Wireguard server. The other is the one l’m trying to use as the client but it just won’t connect to the server (yellow status instead of green). I’m wondering if this has to do with a port forwarding issue.
I set up port forwarding on the router from my ISP - it asked me for the IP associated with the device on the network (I assume this is the wireguard server IP). Can someone confirm this? Here’s a screenshot with the relevant information:
So I see 2 IP addresses on the internet page. One under “Cable” (I have the MT1300 plugged in directly to the main router with an ethernet cable). And then another IP under the name of my wireless connection at home. Which is the IP I need to use for port forwarding?
Use Cable. The Ethernet cable should be connected to the WAN port of the MT-1300.
Make sure the IP address (under Cable) never changes otherwise your port forward won’t work. Either make it Static and assign an address outside your network’s DHCP range or make it fixed (reserve the address in your DHCP settings on the main router).
