Static IP address 2 routers ATT Passthrough mode

So i have 5 static ip address from ATT and want to know if its possible put the ATT router in IP Passthrough mode and then set each of my two routers (ATT LAN 1 and LAN 2) with the static ip address that i was given by att

The reason for this is so my home router can my office router can be truly separated.  

Or since Since i have public ip address just turn off all the firewall stuff in the att router and setup the public ip address section and assigned each one of the static ip address to my two routers

The AT&T gateways only support one cascaded router with the static IP service.

 

So you can either have one router be the recipient of the static IP addresses (Cascaded Router mode) and have a second router then daisy chain off the first.

Or you can use the per-device address allocation (Public Subnet mode and DHCP fixed addess allocation), assigning one of the static IP to one router and another static IP to the second router (and then use NAPT on each of those routers if you want additional devices daisy chained off those routers).

Each is configured differently in the AT&T gateway.

Hi there @godboutd, We understand how important it is to get help with configuring your equipment using static IPs. 

 

When setting up multi Static IP addresses, you’ll get a Dynamic WAN address. It acts as a gateway for the static IP addresses to reach the network. AT&T doesn't automatically assign static IP addresses to devices connected to the Dynamic WAN. Also, depending on the block size that you purchased, you would only be able to use a certain amount of usable addresses. 

 

We also have a page where you can review the best way to set up an AT&T Internet Static IP. Near the bottom of the page, there is an option on how to configure routing using your own equipment. 

Please let us know if you have any additional questions. We are here to help.

Do not know. Some of the AT&T gateways have had problems doing that in the past (e.g., with ping, select ports, etc.).

It also depends on what you mean by "I have all the firewall turned off".

In general you will need to also enable "Allow Inbound Traffic"or create pinholes, depending on your gateway,

 

You can scan the forums here for help from others who have done this in the past (e.g., do a Google search).
