View Full Version : Support for Multipe Public IP addresses

We had an old ADSL router which supported NAT for more than one public
address. We have 16 addresses allocated and need to setup at least 6
for address translation.
That router failed and we picked up a BELKIN F5D7632uk4A router. It
has much better port forwarding options but we cannot expose more than
one of our public addresses - unless we use the DMZ - which is not an
option we want to use.

Are there any BELKIN routers out there that can support multiple
public addresses?

Can anyone recomend a suitable router (wireless is not important) ?

just about any cisco running IOS can do this.

but you need to pick one with the connectivity you need, and will not be
anywhere near as cheap as a Belkin.

last time i checked an 1801 (ADSL, 8 port 10/100 switch, ISDN BRI) was $1000
list price....

but - wouldnt you be better off with a conventional LAN to WAN router (ie no
NAT) and a firewall?
