I have a new (at&t u-verse) 2wire 3801 hgv router/modem (w/ wifi 802.11 a/b/g dissabled) linked via cat5 cable to a netgear wndr3700 802.11 a/b/g/n (because its better). I set my connected netgear to dmz plus mode in the the 2wire lan settings (I could'nt find a bridge mode or a way to disable pvc search) and i turned off the dhcp in the netgears settings. my desktop pc is wired to the netgear and all wireless (ipad, iphones, netbooks, ps3, wii, and dsi's) are also through the netgear. The netgear has a firewall right? Is my setup as safe as it was when it was a cable modem through the netgear. will the netgear firewall protect me? everything seems to be working ok, but i don't want any suprises. just to clarify, when turning on dmz plus mode in the 2wire settings, I had to choose which attatched device to give dmz plus access (opens the firewall to in & out traffic for that device as I understand it?) to, but the netgears settings are not set to dmz plus mode, just dhcp dissabled. The netgear is used only for wifi and shared internet connection and not a home network. Your help will be greatly appreciated!
