IP Passthrough using Synology router

I have a Synology rt2600ac router that i want to use behind a BGW320 gateway. The Synology router uses an ip address of 192.168.1.1 by default. Do i need to change the Synology IP address (for example: 192.168.2.1) because it's in the same address range as the BGW320 (192.168.254.1)?

Thanks.

You should keep the LAN space of the Synology separate from the LAN space of the Gateway.  For one reason that allows you access to the Gateway for management purposes while connected to the Synology.  You could change the Gateway to 192.168.2.254 and its LAN on 192.168.2.0/24 or you could move the Synology to 192.168.2.0/24.  Probably safer to move the Synology, because the assumption is often made that the Gateway is where AT&T puts it out of the box.

Thanks for the confirmation. I will do this over the weekend before I move to the At&t gateway.

I ended up moving the Synology to 192.168.0.1. Everything is working fine.  Thanks for the response.
