Comcast, my ISP, is asking me to upgrade their modem to a modem+router+wire less device. My girlfriend upgraded hers, and I can no longer have my virtu al machines talk to the outside world even though I have bridged networking setup and have all virtual machines on the same subnet as the new modem+ro uter combo.
I have hence decided to not upgrade my comcast modem, which is connected, a t present, to, a d-link router. This router serves my functions well. I can put my virtual machines on the same network as the router provides and I c an also put a physical(non virtual machine) on the DMZ.
So, that's the story.
My question is, if, comcast "forces" me to upgrade to their modem+router co mbo, then, what options do I have to have my virtual machines on the same s ubnet talk to each other and to the internet?
Would a Cisco router help? I guess I could NAT.....
Please feel free to advise and also to ask questions about my configuration .
Thanks in advance.....
