PS3 in DMZ With Two Routers

I’m having problems setting up a two router/modem system to put my PS3 in DMZ while allowing my wireless devices to work. The goal is to have my PS3 in DMZ on router #2 and pass that onto router #1, have my wireless devices work off of Router #1 which will connect to the Cisco cable modem that connects to the internet. The purpose of all this is to control the upload speed of my PS3 (MW3 lag compensation issues) without hindering the upload speed of my other devices. Here’s what I tried and it didn’t work. I’m missing something or doing it wrong, so any help would be appreciated. I don’t think I’m understanding gateways clearly.

My PS3 is manually setup Like this:

IP 10.0.0.50
Subnet 255.255.255.0
Primary DNS 10.0.0.1
Secondary DNS 10.0.0.1
QoS 756 kbs

Router #2 is a Netgear WNR2000 with this setup:

IP 192.168.1.2
Subnet 255.255.255.0
Gateway 192.168.1.1
Primary DNS 192.168.1.1
Secondary DNS 192.168.1.1
DMZ 10.0.0.50
DHCP Disabled
Wireless Disabled

Router #1 is a WNDR3400 setup like this:

IP/DNS get dynamically from ISP
MAC Address default
DHCP starting address 192.168.1.2
DMZ 192.168.1.1

The Cisco modem (Cox Cable) is unconfigurable as far as I know.

So....what am I doing wrong or is this even possible? Thanks.

on Router #1 change the DHCP starting address to 192.168.1.3 and enter 192.168.1.2 (which is the WAN IP of router #2) into the DMZ

if nothing else is connected to router#2, you can assign 192.168.1.2 to the PS3

Is the gateway IP on router 2 correct?

YES, if the WAN IP is 192.168.1.2 and the LAN IP is 10.0.0.1 on router#2

the gateway of the PS3 should be 10.0.0.1

The PS3 doesn't have a gateway setting. I was refering to router #2 to router #1 or the modem. This is where I get confused. Is router #2 talking to the modem straight thru router #1?

if you assign router#2 WAN IP to router#1 DMZ, router#2 should behave like it was directly connected to the Modem
