5268AC, Static IPs and 3rd Party Router: Cascaded Router vs Public:Fixed LAN IP Address Allocation?
Hello, I run my home network behind a 3rd party router and I have a webserver etc. so I have a static IP address allocation from AT&T.
Can someone please help explain the differences between using a cascaded router configuration vs. assigning Public/Fixed LAN mappings (as per below)?
What I have seems to work fine (except only one static IP is assignable per device). My understanding is that the casceded router option would let me use more of the static IPs with the downstream router, but is that the only benefit? If I only plan on using a single static IP, is there some other performance or compatability reason that would mean I should look at cascaded router in more detail?
