    Configuring Streamyx modem as router or modem

    When consulted, 2 streamyx customer relation officers are of the opinion that it is better to configure the modem as a "modem" by way of cd as it is simplier to install and stable, the streamyx contractor who installed my modem configured it as a "router" by way of configuration settings via the modem as he is of the opinion that this way, the pc is less prone to hacking and in the event the operating system needs to be re-format, the modem settings are safely stored at the modem.

    My question is which is the more optimum setting for modem configuration?

    the NAT router is definitely better than the modem option.

    but then, heavy p2p or chat/voice/file transfer users will find NAT routers to be a nuisance with all that port forwarding and what not.

    uPnP NAT routers supposedly solves that problem.
