BGW210 Passthrough not forwarding ports
Sorry for sounding like a broken record but i've read most of the passthrough posts on this forum and I can't seem to get this figured out. I have a bgw210 which I have put in passthrough dchp-fixed using the mac address assigned to my google wifi primary node. My network works as expected for the most part but when I went to forward ports on google wifi i found I could not access them externally unless I also forwarded the same port from the modem to the routers fixed address. I was under the impression that passthrough passed all traffic through, so I should not need port forwarding from modem -> router only from router -> computer. Even then I can't access the ports via an external address on my internal network because nat loopback isn't working (which again makes me think passthrough is not working properly). Any suggestions?
