Re: Can't get router to work

said by nick11:

router is a linksys befrsr41

You should set the Modem to Bridge Mode/Bridged Ethernet Mode and then setup PPPoE in your Linksys befrsr41.

Otherwise you are cascading Routers and performing NAT multiple times (Double-NAT in your case) which isn't the optimal setup.

the cascading and double NAT will happen because the 2200 modem is also a router doc?

and since the 2200 modem is a router too, will it do NAT if you connect the 2200 to the computer alone without a router, thus giving you the security benefits of NAT?
