    Just switched over to AT&T DSL from Road Runner Cable Modem.

    While I had the cable modem, I used a Linksys WRT54G wireless router that had my PC and laptops connected to it.

    Since I switched to AT&T DSL, I have been using AT&T's all-in-one device, the Westell DSL modem/wireless router/firewall.

    I've noticed that uPnP doesn't work as well on the Westell as it did on the Linksys. I also had to change some settings to get my VPN to connect to my company's network.

    Which is better? Should I put the Westell in bridged mode, and reconnect my Linksys? Or keep it the way I have it running it though the all-in-one device?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd put the Westell in bridged mode, which will then emulate your old configuration, which apparently worked properly.
