Setup/Edit Static IP Routing/Forwarding on the Amplifi router

As an example of when a static route is needed, consider the following case:
Your main Internet access is through a cable modem to an ISP.
You have an ISDN router on your home network for connecting to the company where you are employed. This router's address on your LAN is 192.168.1.100.
Your company's network address is 22.214.171.124.
When you set up your router, two implicit static routes were created. A default route was created with your ISP as the gateway, and a second static route was created to your local network for all 192.168.1.x addresses. With this configuration, if you try to access a device on the 126.96.36.199 network, your router forwards your request to the ISP. The ISP forwards your request to the company where you are employed, and the company firewall is likely to deny the request.
In this case you must define a static route, telling your router that 188.8.131.52 should be accessed through the ISDN router at 192.168.1.100. Here is an example:
The Destination IP Address and IP Subnet Mask fields specify that this static route applies to all 134.177.x.x addresses.
The Gateway IP Address field specifies that all traffic for these addresses should be forwarded to the ISDN router at 192.168.1.100.
A metric value of 1 works because the ISDN router is on the LAN.
