    Hey guys, I have a question,

    A few months ago, my ISP gave me a new Netopia 2241N-VGx and hooked it up to my setup of: Internet->Netopia->Airport Extreme (Draft-N)->PCs and macs. This modem has HORRIBLE port forwarding along with other things! I need the modem because the AE doesn't have a modem. This is why I want to switch over the controls to the AE and just have the Internet pass through the modem into the AE. Is it possible to do that, I don't need specific instructions, just what to turn on and off and such. Any help is appreciated.

    What you need to do is put the modem into bridging mode. It is probably in routing mode out of the box.

    Any idea how? Should I turn off NAT? DHCP? DNS? What?
