I understand that Netgear Routers have had a rather poor history of NTP implementation (apparently the had a model or firmware that was flooding requests to a university's NIST server.
In any event, I use my WGR614v7 solely as an AP and a switch. It does not serve DHCP and connects LAN to LAN to another wireless router, a Linksys which serves as the gateway and DHCP server. Almost everything works fine for this configuration except that the Netgear has some notification applications that rely on NTP and since the router is reporting a time/date in 2003 I have to assume that this data isn't getting requested or getting through without this router having the WAN connection. I thought, maybe if I opened port 123 on the gateway router and forwarded to the Netgear's IP that NTP would work but the clock does not update. I feel certain that if I exchanged the position (responsibilities) of the 2 routers, that this would work but I was hoping someone would have an idea to save me some reconfiguration. The Linksys router doesn't use a NTP implementation at all.
