Re: Mixing and Matching DHCP and static IPs

This is unnecessarily complicated, and will make your life harder than it needs to be. The best thing would be to not use the airstation as a router at all, just use it as a switch + wireless access point in a flat configuration, with the router plugged into the switch. Ignore the "wan" port on the airstation and turn off any dhcp or other services that it is providing.

The most important part is "turn off any DHCP service it provides". Othewise it will get in the way of the other DHCP server.

This will not work the way you think it will. Devices on the airstation will have packets go directly to (because the airstation knows how to get to anything on (you never actually specified the netmask for 192.168.1., hopefully that's correct). The packets returning from will go to because does not know how to get to and uses the default route instead.

As any SOHO router, it is likely that the Airstation masquerades forwarded connections, so other nodes on its WAN side do no see the real 192.168.11.x addresses but only the WAN side address of the Airstation,

I guess that even the firewall does not have a special route for, as it is not supposed to see that address range.
