Re: Can't set Ethernet port mode anymore?

Yep, it can be set on both side of the interface. I can't remember clearly, but there was a performance increase when both sides were explicitly set to 100Mbps Full Duplex and not allowing either side to auto-negotiate.
Like I said, I'll have to look into getting another Wireless router. However, I can't understand your DMZ comment. DMZ would allow the NAS to be seen from outside the 3800's firewall which I wouldn't want. Unless you mean in the DMZ of the new router... That would make more sense.
The other wireless router that I have is essentially acting as WAP with a switch on it (behind the 3800), so I should be able to accomplish the same thing with a new router as well (turn off NAT, DHCP, etc).
Thanks for the suggestions. Would be easier (and cheaper) if they just put the old functionality back in
