comment SSH: What does this delay mean?
I like to research things like that before trying them out and didn't want to interfere with anybody else's work. I thought, perhaps, it had something to do with the server looking for a key on my machine from looking at the log.

comment Forward a port with modem (with built-in but disabled router) + a separate router
the SBG modem doesn't label or show different placement of the ports on the back. However, I was able to get a hint from the term "bridge mode," which led me to some articles that described how to do it. Thanks!

SBB (did you mean SBG?) can no longer be accessed except by either a hard reset or direct connection (already forgot, but it was 2 hours ago). Anyhow, I think I have finally set things up with the new hardware, including a Raspberry Pi that was inactive for a long time.

Oh OK, I see what I had set up now (double-nat)! I have disabled NAPT mode on my modem and reconnected my wireless router's WAN to the 1st LAN on my modem. I can no longer connect to the SBG6580 at 192.168.0.1 (as expected since its no longer a router?), but my wireless router seems to be working well.

I've updated my post. My modem doesn't have distinguishing WAN vs LAN ports..

I'm currently doing what you describe in the latter. e.g. The wireless router's WAN is plugged into the 1st LAN (I'm assuming it's LAN because it has 4 ports and they are not labeled or separated) on the SBG6580. I've been using it like this for a while. Is this wrong?
