How to configure Network Address Translation (NAT) on your modem

6. Follow the steps to edit the NAT settings.

  • Step 1:  Enable/Disable NAT (we suggest keeping enabled unless advised to do so by a qualified tech)

  • Step 2:  Click "Apply" to save your changes.

NOTE: CenturyLink recommends that you keep NAT enabled. Changes to this feature will reset some of the other settings on the modem. Do not proceed without understanding the technical impacts of using this feature.
