At least, that's what you think... There are issues with routers too, depending on who's firmware is running on them. Sorry, but I can't really elucidate on that at this point.

Port Address Translation (PAT) has issues anyhow, regardless of the device doing the work. Some protocols just don't work through PAT!

Any views, thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. They don't necessarily represent those of my employer (BlackBerry).

Well I am basing this on experience. I have one at home and set up one on the network I set up at church. Both run flawless and have added to connection speed and dl speed. Plus I took the extra work off of the server so it can do it's job.
