    2 routers, ISP router / VPN router. IPTV connection problem when switching routers.

    Hi all,

    I setup a secondary router connected to my home isp router. Via lan to wan. Lan from my first router connected to the wan port of my VPN asus route. I changed the lan ip for both routers, first 192.168.1.1 and secondary VPN router to 192.168.2.1 .. Both routers work brilliant and i uploaded the vpn profiles from my express vpn subscription with good speeds.


    at this point i connected both routers to a 2 in 1 network switch with buttons as you can see below, so my father can switch between both routers when needed. Basically his iptv subscription sometimes blocks on weekend and i thought this method would help as it changes from his home router to the vpn by the click of a button. as he is not tech savvy


    Though, i have come across a problem, my problem is now when you switch from 1 router to the other, my fathers IPTV channels do not come on straight away. for instance, tonight. There is no ISP block, so both home router without vpn will work fine, and the VPN router will also work fine. But for test purposes, i was switching between the two by pushing the buttons but came across a problem. The IPTV was limited to switching to 1 one router at time in a 20 min limit. For example if i was to switch from router 1 the iptv shows fine but then in 5 mins i want to switch to router 2 to test, but the IPTV would not show. So i have to go back to router 1 which works fine. wait atleast 20 mins then i can go to router 2 and then the iptv will work. but if 5 mins after i want to go back to router 1 i cant till after 20 mins. vice versa.


    I dont know why this is happening, i contacted my subscription supplier and asked if VPN was allowed he confirmed that it was, i was just worried that the suppliers servers is flagging the instant ip switch on my side and therefore blocks change till after a certain refresh time. Just wanted things to be instant.


    do you possibly know why this my be happening ? and how i could over come it.


    Sorry its a little confusing but i hope you understand.


    below is what i brought and also how i connected my routers.
