Hello I'm trying to access my home network remotely from a location not close to my house and from my researching I think I need to bridge the Comcast provided wireless modem (netgear) w/ the Comcast provided cable modem (ariss) or have the NAT removed or turned off from the cable modem via Comcast. Various Comcast support techs have no idea what NAT or double NAT is because they all appear to be reading from a script.
I've tried numerous times to connect to my home network but i get an error message that reads " possible double nat ". I've also read that I can use a "switch" to turn the NAT off or bridge the 2 ip addresses. I have a "D-Link 5-Port Desktop ethernet Switch" and I have no idea how to use it as a bridge or switch within the network.
It would be greatly appreciated if someone could direct me with step by step instructions or provide a helpful link. I am technically inclined however I'm a noob when it comes to networking.
Besides the D-Link 5-port switch I also have these items that are not being used and can be used w/ the bridging if possible...2 wireless-N routers, Verizon provided DSL wireless router and a cable modem I purchased from Woot "just in case" a few years ago.
can you please list the model number for the Arris and the Netgear?
Does the Netgear have a WAN port and is the WAN port connect to the Arris?
If so are the computer you are trying to connect to connected to the Netgear?
Sorry for the late reply:
Netgear Wireless N 150 (WNR1000 v2)
The Netgear is connected to the modem & the computer. The cable modem is connected to wireless router but not the computer. Also the wall Cable coaxial is connected to the modem. The computer is running windows 7.
Any suggestions ?!!?
Sorry...I think it's a WAN port, it doesn't list WAN or LAN on wireless router
