Req: Advice on Netgear Modem/Router

Discussion in 'Broadband' started by Anthony R. Gold, Apr 5, 2014.

  1. Is there an economical Netgear modem/router with slightly better router
    features than their DG834G? The extra facility I need is port forwarding.
    The DG834G allows for open ports from WAN to LAN but not forwarding from one
    particular port number on the WAN side to a different port at the LAN host.

    Is that the same as PAT rules, Port Address Translation?

    That is supported on my DG834PN with DG Team firmware.

    Admittedly, it's not something I have delved into.

  3. Sounds probable.
    I am hoping to find something that uses Netgear software. This is for a
    remote site so it must be robust (used by tens or hundreds of thousands)
    rather than bleeding edge.

    Get a Vigor. If budget is a problem, they are available secondhand,
    from about £30.

    I have several, V2600 and V2800, (not wireless) and could supply and set
    up for you. I'm near Thetford in Norfolk if it's any help.
