It should be apparent which connected device is the pcWRT. If there’s any doubt, you can get the WAN IP address from the pcWRT and match it with the listed devices on the NVG510. When you log on the pcWRT management page (http://192.168.10.1), the IP address is displayed under the Internet section.
Click the Firewall menu, then click IP Passthrough.
For Allocation Mode: select Passthrough.
