Hi, and thanks in advance for looking, cause it seems I have problems with getting people to even do that none-the-less answer...

So I have a rather large HOME network for what most normal homes have... (10+ devices connected simultaneously)
A few of those devices are Gaming devices, as I love online gaming...But my NAT setting on my router is causing me issues, and I need to know a little bit about it to fix it...

(BTW, I have tried just setting up a separate router as a DMZ server, and having all of my gaming devices all on it, but 1-Idont want to buy another wifi router just for my PSP, and 2-I don't want to have my PC that is running Xlink Kia on a NAT'd connection...)

So that leaves me to this....

I went onto my Linksys BEFSR41 router, and under the setup=>advanced routing tab, there is a radio button for enabling and disabling NAT...just that...nothing more...nothing less...that simple....

BUT right next to the selections, there is an info paragraph thing that explains that the NAT is what allows devices on your network to share one internet connection....

Now I am accessing my computer remotely using Logmein.com right now from my office, and I don't get off until 10:00 pm and hoe until 10:30 pm, so if I click disable NAT, will it screw up my connections for all of the computers (my wife is at home doing stuff for work and would be severely pissed off if I disabled internet for the whole house so only positive answers please....
