Why does the device have a different default gateway?  Normally the gateway is a router as it connects one network to another.  A gateway is used when an address is not on the same network.


We need additional information on your set up.

You have some misconceptions on how to do this.  One of those "wans" have to be a public ip address.


Internet<>wan [public ip] router [private ip] lan<>wan [private ip] router [private ip] lan


As you can see you can't have two wans on subnet or no routing can take place.


If the scenario is you have added a router to an existing router [they are in series] to port forward you have to set the 2nd routers wan port as static ip address.  You forward the ports in the main router to that fixed ip address.  Then you forward the ports in the 2nd router to pc hosts static ip address.
