Hi. Had my rt2600ac for a month or so. Had 8081-2 update and updated to 125 today.

My network center has hidden the port forwarding and traffic control options. They flash up sometimes when I log in but immediately disappear.
I am left with Status, Internet, Security, Operation Modes only.

What have I missed? There is probably a check box somewhere?

Thanks

Well there you are. The RT2600ac is not acting as a firewall/router just an access point to connect wireless devices to your LAN.

I have my ISP's router set in bridge/modem mode and the RT2600ac has to be in router mode.

There's your answer. Push it back to router mode and you will be good to go.

I'm just saying that's the reason you don't see the feature.

Ok, so how was it configured so far? Was it a router with double NAT to your ISP device? Is the ISP device also a router or a pure modem device, meaning that your PPOE task is on your 2600 device?
