How do I configure IPTV (Reliance Jio Fiber Set Top Box in India) through Load Balancing Router?

Hi. As the title suggests I am in India. Forgive me for my ignorance because I am am absolute novice at this. I have a very peculiar problem.
I am using multiple internet connections from different providers. To pool these connections I am using a TP-Link R480T+ Load Balancing Router. This load balancing router is further connected to a Netgear R 6220 Router which is the actual DHCP server for my home network. Now, one of my ISP's (Reliance Jio or simply JIO) is providing IPTV services through a seperate Set Top Box (STB). In order to work, this STB needs to be connected directly to the LAN of the Jio Router.
I wish to connect this router in my home at a point which is far away from where the Jio router is kept.
Hence I need to connect the STB to my home network and thus it would have to be connected to the Jio router through the Netgear R6220 and then through the TP Link R480T+.
I have attached a sketch to explain my perspective.
I need help about whether this can be done? If yes, please guide me with basics. Do I need to setup Port Triggering or is there some other method?New photo by Harshit Mishra

Setup a DHCP reservation for the STB so that it always gets the same IP address. Then setup Policy Routing on your load balancing router to always route traffic from the now static DHCP reserved STB IP address through the appropriate WAN.

However this assumes your Netgear is not adding one more layer of NAT (I am not sure why you need to do that though)

Check Policy Routing in the manual -- Source

1. avoid DHCP or do a DHCP binding so STB has a static ip always.
2. next fordward all the request from STB through the DHCP server to appropriate WAN of the required ISP.
3. if its not working then DMZ the STB ip in the DCHP server.

Hi again. Thank alI for your valuable advice. I managed to sort this out . Just describing it here for others' reference.


Step 1. I changed the IP address of my STB to static address which was in the IP range of my Netgear R 6220.
Step 2. I set up PORT TRIGGERING in the R6220 for this static address. Here, arbitrarily I assigned 4848 as host port and set 5000 to 5099 as incoming port range.
Step 3. I set up port triggering on TP-Link R480T+ Load Balancer. Here, I assigned 5000 - 5099 ( same as incoming range on R6220) as host port range while the incoming port range was assigned as 5200 - 5299. This triggering was for WAN 1 port to which my Jio Fibre connection was connected.
It works. 😊
