    Search button...? :cheering:

    MAC Masquerading: on info page the MACs are "hidden" like this: xx:xx:xx:xx:BF:52

    UPnP Forward: guess what gets listed here if you forward a port using WinXP PNP... :cheerup:

    I appreciate the point in the right direction......but

    masquerading is the wrong word then......that's MAC hiding. [confused] and with it turned on my status page still shows all the MACs....or is it applied only when viewing from WAN.....or does it only apply to DHCP lease table ? (which would be kinda pointless)

    UPnP: Mmmmm....if it shows me what XP has done.....why is it editable ? Looks like it wants me to set it up......might as well use port forwarding ?

    Logs : Do these not work correctly ? With all boxes ticked and set to highest logging all it shows me are source IP & destination port. Can't tell whether they were succesful or not.

    masquerading is when the router impersonates a mac on the network

    this is useful when the isp locks you down to one mac. upnp is automatic if you want it to be you can turn it on to auto allow port opens (like xbox) or off to not
