Re: netgear MR2100 security

When you use the Nighthawk Netgear MR2100 using Mobile broadband the IP address of the modem will not be the same as your public IP address due to carrier grade NAT.


If you connect the Nighthawk Netgear MR2100 via cable to another router or router modem the IP address will not be the same as your public IP due to the NAT of the router or modem.


Your online banking is not compromised. This is another false security alert that Avast is known for producing.
