I have two internet connections, one super fast -but dynamic IP - called 'NETA' and the other is slow - but provides static IPs - called 'NETB'

How can I allow NETB to use NETA's internet connection without having any access to the computers on NETA?

Thanks so much in advance.

I bought the cheapest rack mount I could find: http://amzn.to/1QZHFQA

Really happy, solved my problem perfectly once I figured out how to setup the dmz and forwarding. Connecting to the slow network from the internet is 10x faster and I now have native speeds across the lans.

Keep your firmware updated. Some of the cheapest routers have known vulnerabilities, but if you keep up on the firmware, it should be ok... Keep antivirus software up to date.

TP-Link makes a quality product for the price and is far from a "cheap" piece of equipment. Security vulnerabilities affect all equipment regardless of price.
