Re: uverse now offering bridge mode on static ip offerings? I wonder why this gateway seems so restricted. Dealing with the 1024 NAT limit sucked when I tried to host a LAN party (really we were all playing online though ... WAN party?) with 12 PCs. If 3 or 4 of us would refresh a server list at once, it'd bug out.
I came from TW where I had a dedicated modem and a separate router. It appears for new service the 50/5 and 30/5 they give you an all in one unit but it supports bridging (is the rumor).
