Billion 7800N - suggested setting please


[link to this post]
 
Following on from the advice given in this forum about getting a modem router that was going to be compatible with the 21Cn wholesale broadband and eventually the FTTC service that are supposed to be coming my way sometime. I bought a Billion 7800N device.

Like most router/modem manuals it gives no advice as to what values one should set up apart from the ISP supplied information to enable it to make a connection.

I would like some advice on what Firewall settings should be made. The router is serving three computers and a printer. I have the DHSP/IP process working.

Also where do I ensure that NAT is enabled in the router, I could not find that in the router manual

Thanks for any tips.

You won't need the modem component for FTTC; it has its own modem.

True, but the Billion has a WAN port that can be used with it.
