    Ive got a mate who is having problems with his Netgear router, The connection is keep dropping every few mins. He can get it working ok if the NAT is disabled. Im guessing this will make him more vulnerable to attacks, so are there any other settings that i can get him to look at that might sort the NAT problem out? Cheers

    Er - is this the Sky badged version? Because if so quite a lot of customization has been done on it.

    As it has got to be very new I'd talk to the support people first - I've heard of this happening when it was actualy a tweak at the exchange that was required.

    Raffaz,

    What kind of connection is between the Netgear router and the computer? wired? wireless?

    Are they trying to keep NAT off to charge more for *their* router that can provide multiple IP's or am I barking up the wrong tree?

    assuming it's not a custom version, I'd upgrade the netgear ROM to the latest version. That may very well help

    Not sure what you mean here - but if this is a Sky router it is sent out free!

    Harry,

    I was thinking back to the Ntl days where you could only have one machine per box.
