Does OOMA have DHCP services built into it? Is there any way of turning this off, and just letting the Airport provide the DHCP service to my network?
Not the end of the world, but would like to know if this has been noticed by anyone else.

Unfortunately, Murphy is only partially correct.murphy wrote:Apple seems to think that double NAT is a bad thing. It's actually more secure than single NAT.
1. It is not just Apple. Many people have found that imperfectly configured double network address translation (NAT) causes problems for computer networks, even home networks. There are many web pages explaining why and when this can happen; just Google "double NAT" for hundreds of pages. Only the simplest home networks (i.e. one computer that only browses the web) have no problems with double NAT unless it's modified to avoid problems. At the very least, double NAT can slow you down. Some VPN connections are unable to cope, for example, resulting in users losing their ability to connect to work networks from home. Double NAT may work for you now, Murphy, but if you ever modify your home setup to something more complex, you may need to use bridge mode.
2. Double NAT should not, by itself, be relied upon for increased security. NAT allows for one internet connection (external IP address) to be shared among multiple computers or devices in a local network. Any infected computer that shares the same router with other computers can infect them as well.
