Re: Actiontec V1000H NCS firmware with A2pv6C035f.d22c DSL PHY

Unless this router is a bigger pile than I've heard, turning on Bridge Mode by default disables all router features, including NAT. Thus why you would need your own router.

This. NAT only is active when routing is involved. By turning on bridge mode you're disabling routing.

Disabling router features is the point of bridge mode so of course it will disable NAT.

What about this?

Bridge mode disables NAT, you wouldn't be able to get a public IP address if NAT was on.

If the computers connected to your ActionTec are still pulling private IP Addresses, then you are -not- in bridged mode. In bridged mode, IP Addresses won't be handed out, other than the public IP provided by your ISP (Not starting in 192.168, 172.16 or 10.)

You can disable that NAT setting if you like in bridged mode but it's not doing anything. As a bridge there is no traffic for the router to translate as it's just passing it through unmodified. There is no public IP assigned to the actiontec so it has nothing to translate to.

For IGMP yes, it does still seem to bridge the multicast broadcast traffic, make sure it's enabled if you have TV service.
