Re: puting router into modem mode

modem mode will simply pass the data to your router to then handle.

Re: puting router into modem mode

Since the hub isn't doing normal functionally might get some improvement, will not be a massive amount

Re: puting router into modem mode

The answer your needing is can a QoS router handle your latency unload better so yes and can it improve the NAT that router mode does in modem mode yes.

maybe, maybe not.
depends how good the router is - it might make it worse, it might make it better, it might make no difference at all.

Re: puting router into modem mode

The latency problems caused by the Puma 6 chipset were partly resolved by a firmware update. This affected the modem, adding your router won't make it any better.
