Wireless Modems and Gateways

These are most often supplied by the customer's DSL ISP. Some modems have built in security features that need to be addressed such as firewalls and attack/intrusion detection (ADS) features that will either block the service or cause Packet Loss (buffering).

This is corrected by:

  • Disabling the firewall or other security features (Attack/Intrusion Detecion)
  • Bridging the modem to a router (if you are not using a wireless gateway)

Most Common Wireless Gateways:
