Re: [Modem] out of the blue PPPOE problem!
With the modem doing the pppoe and also set to use the public ip
You can forward ports with the router
The router will have a public ip address and ddns will work
said by rxb216:No, not with this setup
are there any disadvantages I will have by leaving pppoe on the modem, rather than the router?
said by rxb216:That depends on how well the routers upnp works
Will programs on my clients that use UPNP be able to open ports and work properly??
Santa Clara, CA
thanks for all your help guys, I used the public IP setting, and my dir-601 router works just dandy with ddns and port forwarding! yee-haw!!
maybe pppoe isn't so evil after all.....well...naaa i take it back, it still sucks when things get busted...at least my Crapcast here in santa clara doesn't need pppoe
