Two essential features of a Small Office router is NAT and DHCP feature. NAT (Network Address Translation) feature converts single public IP address from Modem into a number of private IP addresses and helps multiple computers connected to the router to access the Internet. Yesterday one friend called me to check his LAN because only one computer connected to the router was able to access the Internet. The reason for other computers failed to access the Internet was the NAT failure on his Router.
