Overview
Network Address Translation (NAT) devices conceal information and directly oppose Network Access
Control efforts. A majority of home routers function as NATing devices by default but can and should be
configured to restrict this functionality.
Network Router Configuration
1. Enable DHCP Snooping on network routers. For vendor specific instructions on how to enable DHCP
snooping, please consult your routers manual.
Home Router Configuration
1. Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the back of the router; keep the power plugged in.
2. Remain connected to the router via wireless, log into the admin console, and change the router to an
access point or bridged mode by disabling the DHCP server. (For router-specific instructions, see below)
IMPORTANT: Step 2 MUST be completed before moving on to step 3
3. Plug in the Ethernet cable from one of the LAN ports to wall. Moving forward, please do not use the
WAN port (please see image below). Please do not reset the router after doing this; if you reset, you will
have to complete the process again. In the case of a reset, always disconnect the Ethernet cable first.
