Thanks!

My experience with the IP passthrough on the NGV510, the 3347, and other Motorola/Netopia DSL routers is that it frequently does not work with some routers. I have had problems with IP passthrough with routers from multiple vendors, and I have also had it work properly for months and then suddenly stop working on the same router. I think that it is just the nature of the beast. The only reliable way to get the effects of IP passthrough is to purchase a static IP block and pass the required public IP addresses to the equipment connected to the DSL router's LAN.
