If your router supports uPnP, that should forward all the ports appropriately. Most modern routers support this.

I am not familiar with that modem. But I found this: »portforward.com/english/routers/···work.htm

If it doesn't support uPnP then you need to forward the ports manually as explained in the link

For starters, if your modem has wifi and is doing nat, it IS a router also.

Second, if you opened or disabled nat, you would quickly run into trouble having more than 1 device hooked to the internet in your house. Nat is basically how multiple devices can do multiple things using the single IP SL gives you.

If your gateway device isn't working how you need it to, then you're looking at having to get your own modem and router.

The modem alone with pay for itself in saved rental fees over the course of about a year (have to call in and register the modem and have them remove the rental fee and the wifi fee if you are paying it, then return your gateway device) and a separate router is going to give you a load more options and more power to handle your network better.

To pick up both, you are looking at something around an average of $200 for off the shelf units. You can save some money buying used pieces online if you feel comfortable doing that.
