No, I do NOT have my router reserved on the Sagemcom. For some obscure reason I could not get it working when it was reserved. But it is set as DMZ. I have DHCP enabled on my modem. If I point a browser to my IP, I can communicate with my router if I enable the remote config option, so all is as I expect. Note that to test this, you need to be on an external network (my cell for example). Hope this helps
Interesting. I get my modem login. I used to get the router log in which I disabled but with this new sagemcom all bets are off. It will not forward at all using dmz or ports or anything. I am just going to switch back to my old modem with old firmware and give this new one two thumbs down. Thanks for info tho.
Just went back to my old sagemcom and checked and it's set up the exact same way as the new one and the port forwarding works fine on the old one, so I think the new firmware is garbage on the 2864.
