SETUP HELP

Hi i have just bought the xr 500 &a netgear modem, I am setting them both up and dont know whether i should have the modem set to router&modem mode or modem mode? The manual suggests in R&M mode i couldnt use advamced features on the xr500 so i guess i should use modem only mode?

Re: SETUP HELP

Optimal setup is modem mode as that should ensure Open NAT. More info here: http://support.netduma.com/en/support/solutions/articles/16000076587-dumaos-optimal-settings-guide-o...
