      Double NAT using AirPort Extreme and Sky Router (Sagem)

      Hi all,

      Having a devil of a time getting location services to work on my Mac. Using the 'Back to my Mac' feature would be very handy too, but am scuppered by the 'Double NAT' issue which no amount of port forwarding can seem to solve.

      Is there any way of disabling the NAT on the Sky router or making it behave as only a modem? I have DHCP and WiFi turned off on it at the moment.

      Any help is much appreciated and would earn virtual pints.

      Try putting the Apple's IP into the DMZ of the Sky router. That is the nearest you will get to modem only mode.

      Not sure if it would work but you could try giving the AE a fixed address of 192.168.0.254 and make its DHCP range 192.168.1.1 to 100. This would mean you had a separate network based on the AE and another based on the Sky router.
