Re: Netgear config. - confusion reigns

I think your internet browsing issues can be fixed by putting the FVS336G on a shelf. If you need some of the extra features provided by the Netgear (VPN, SSL-VPN, etc.), you might want to contact your ISP to see if they're willing/able to disable their modem/router's NAPT functions and put it in bridge mode.

BTW, packets received by the modem/router from the FVS336G appear to originate from the FVS336G's WAN IP address (whatever IP address in the subnet the Netgear has been assigned by the modem/router's DHCP server). As the packets traverse the modem/router onto the internet, they are rewritten again so that they appear to originate from your public IP address (the modem/router's WAN IP address).
