Attaching Router to Gateway

I have been using a 5G Mobile Broadband gateway (modem + wifi router) for the past several months but was having some issues with the gateway allowing some devices to connect.

 

So just today I turned off the wifi on the gateway and attached my Nighthawk wifi router instead.  So far everything is working great - all devices are connecting.

 

My questions is --- should I activate the IP PASSTHROUGH mode available on the gateway?  I am seeing in the Nighthawk Logs repeated DOS attacks being recorded with the IP address of the gateway - I am presuming these are not really attacks.

 

Anyway just looking for advice on how to optimize my set up.

 

Thank you!

Re: Attaching Router to Gateway

that'll fix the double nat. 

But if its working as it should and giving good speeds, why fix what isn't broken.
