I’m using an A1300 as a wireguard client and an AX1800 as a wireguard server.
I want to turn off IP masquerading - that is, I want the IP of my laptop that’s connected to the A1300 to be visible to any websites/servers that I connect to. However, when I disable IP masquerading on the A1300, no traffic gets through.
Some different posts mention this issue, and one says the subnets need to match. (GL-A1300 cannot send traffic over wireguard when IP masquerading is disabled - #2 by hansome)
However, I’m not sure which settings I should change, and what they should be changed to. Can someone identify the exact settings that should be updated, and suggest appropriate values?
(I tried going to ‘Network > LAN > Router IP Address’ and setting both the client & server to 192.168.1.1, however it had no effect - still no traffic getting through.)
Or am I misunderstanding how IP addresses work? My ultimate goal is to prevent endpoint websites/servers from going "hmm… the IP address of the laptop should be [xxx.xxx.x.x], but in my logs it’s [yyy.yyy.y.y]. That’s suspicious, they must be using a VPN!!
As long as that’s not a problem, I’m not worried about disabling IP masquerading (although it would still be useful to have a solution to my question for future reference).
