Routing Mode on RV180 and RV180W
This article explains how to select the routing mode on RV180 and RV180W routers. The user can select either Gateway (NAT) or Router. Network Address Translation (NAT) is a technique which allows several computers on a LAN to share an Internet Connection. Computers on a LAN use a private IP address range while the WAN port on the router is configured with a single public IP address. This is only applicable if the router is going to function as the gateway router for the network segment.
Step 1. Use the Configuration Utility of the router to choose Networking > Routing > Routing Mode which opens the Routing Mode page.
Step 2. There are two routing modes available:
• Gateway (NAT) – Click this radio button if the Internet Service Provider (ISP) has provided only one IP address and this router is going to function as the gateway for the network segment, All hosts connected through the router need to be assigned private IP addresses and will be translated to the publicly routable IP address provided by the ISP when accessing the internet.
• Router – Click this radio button if the ISP has provided a publically routable IP address to each of the hosts connected through the router or if this router is not going to function as the gateway for the network segment.
Step 3. Click Save to save the settings or click Cancel to revert the changes made.
