Hey, I was just wondering. Putting a device into Demilitarized zone, will this mean the same as all ports open? Since im thinkin bout doing this instead of forwarding ports just to get wrong port chance outa the way.

 

Also - Is it normal to get 2x upload speed after putting up a switch? I should only get 100/100 and thats abotu what i were getting before putting in my new switch. After putting the new switch in i get 100/200 which sounds really weird for me.

Ifs its a console like a Xbox or something a DMZ would be ok. A DMZ by passes the routers NAT feature and "firewall" so for a general computer port forwarding is recommended instead. Dont think a switch would have much of a impact on speed.

Very weird about the switch http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/4616193563   <- with the switch -> Without the switch http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/4619274867

But a simple Dmz will work? Only downside is it wil loose firewall protection? If i understood correct

You will lose the routers "firewall" protection with a DMZ set up. Dont know. Your ISP sets upload and download limits.

The easiest way to explain what the DMZ is like, is that a device that is in the DMZ acts like it is directly connected to the Internet.

 

It is not normally recommended that you do this to a PC.  A Windows XP machine would be infected in 20 minutes.  This has been improved upon since Windows now ships and installs with the firewall active, but that doesn't mean that you are safe.  Normally you can use port forwarding or turn on UPnP to get around putting a machine in the DMZ.
