It's pretty clear that you don't know enough about the internet, its protocols
and how communication and addressing works. It's a complex mess and what
you're trying to do won't work. You should acquire basic knowledge in order
to ask more precise questions or, more importantly, answer them yourself.
Start to inform yourself about networking and the inner workings of networking
devices instead of spamming this list with the same stuff over and over again.
As someone prior to me said, you act like you're on reddit.
