I have asked this question in response to another question here ( 5 Max connections/devices to the internet? Is my ISP limiting me somehow? ), but thought I should start a thread to see if I can get wider more specific help:
I have a 5 device limit that I cannot seem to work around. I live in an apartment and the ISP's modem / router sits in a central locked room that I cannot access physically and is, of course, password protected.
I have a Time Capsule hard wired into the ISP modem / router operating in Bridge mode which is the only mode that I have been able to operate. I would like to use the full gambit of devices (2 iPhone / 2 iPad / iMac / 2 AppleTV / 2 Airport Express) and still have room on the network for guests. Currently, if my wife wants to get online I have to turn off the wifi on one of my devices. It would appear that both Time Capsule and Airport Express are using one of the 5 slots on the network.
A solution may be to 'double-NAT' but I do not know how to do that nor the pitfalls behind it. Is there anyone out there that can give me some basic guidance?
