ASUS RT-N66U behind Arris BGW210 (IP Passthrough) and Firewall Settings
Service Level: Gigapower fiber 100Mbs.
I finally got the RT-N66U working behind the AT&T router using IP passthrough, but I'm curious about the firewall/packet filtering. I have both radios disabled on the BGW210. The BGW210 has a desktop computer, an IP phone, and the ASUS router plugged into the ethernet ports. Should I move the IP phone and desktop to the ASUS ethernet ports so that I can disable the firewall on one of the routers? My understanding is that it's not desirable to have packet filtering/firewalls enabled on both routers. Should I turn off packet filtering on the BGW210 and leave the ASUS firewall in place (after moving wired Ethernet mentioned above)? I assume that the ASUS firewall has more features/control. Thanks in advance.
