Advice needed, 8 port router for Netgear CG3100 in bridge mode?
Posted on 2013-11-19
I have a Netgear CG3100 wireless modem/router and don’t have the option of altering DNS settings in order to use unblock-us.com, I think restriction is in place by my ISP. Tech support advised to place in bridge mode.
I have disabled NAT to get into bridge mode but left my wireless on which appears to be working fine. Can I therefore just get a wired 8 port router instead of a wireless router to connect my 4 PC and 2 TV’s (I will be connecting one TV directly to the LAN port and the other one via a Roku 3 box for Internet streaming media).
Any recommendations for an 8 port router and do I need a gigabit?
Can I use a switch such as a NETGEAR GS108 8-Port instead of a router or should I get something like a Netgear FVS318G 8-Port Gigabit, what is the difference?
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
