Terrible hint
Authored by: giskard22 on May 31, '06 08:36:15AM

This is a ridiculous hint. It'll turn your base station into a switch, rather than a NAT router. The first device on your network to request an IP address will get one from directly from your ISP. Since most accounts only include a single IP, no other devices will be able to get internet access.

The proper solution to connectivity problems is to configure your router do to the appropriate port forwarding, not to disable its most important features.
