No you wouldn't. 

So your options are this. 

1. keep the double nat setup you have. 

2. figure out how to to put the Netgears IP address into the xfinity's DMZ (try calling xfinity for help with this)

3. put the netgear into AP mode and miss out on some features. 

 

its a problem of cascading routers

If you're using both in router mode, the dumaOS router won't function as well as it can. 

I don't have a majic means of fixing it. you know what your options are (outlined earlier).
