    I just set up AirPort Extreme as the primary router. There are three settings I have question as to what to select:

    (1) Enable NAT-PMP?
    (2) Allow setup over WAN? Any suggestions?
    (3) IGMP Snooping?

    Please help!

    yes, allows applications to open ports for itself
    no, hacking risk, and no need
    no, leave default

    Thanks for the prompt reply. I have more questions:

    (1) "renew DHCP Lease", default is 1 day?
    (2) "enable IPv6 connection sharing", default is yes?
    (3) check "5GHz network name" Pane under Wireless Options, default is not checked?
    (4) "enable Access Control" default is no?
    (5) "Share Disks over WAN" default is no?

    Thanks again!

    1. That is fine!
    2. That is fine!
    3. That just means that the AirPort will decide what band to use. For instance if your network is called SmithWireless, it will connect to the client at the best possible band (5 GHz or 2.4 GHz) automatically.
    4. That is to set time limits for clients if needed.
    5. That would allow you to remotely access attached hard drives over the internet.
