Re: [General] Correct Cisco WIC for SBC DSL?
The 4100 modems had problems with too many connections when the modem was handling the PPPoE. Certain online games expected to make more connections than the modem's limited NAT memory could handle and the modem would reboot.
The last available firmware update helped this problem some, but the real cure is to run the modem in bridged mode and let the router behind it handle the PPPoE encapsulation.

Ah - I had determined the problem to be too many Xlates / connections, but didn't know you could put it in bridged mode. I'll try that when my 5100 overheats. I actually found the 5100 in our ewaste closet at work, and I think there is a netopia floating around somewhere too.
Thank you for the insight on this.
