I decided to put my Verizon DSL gateway in bridge mode and got a separate TP-Link Archer C1200 router, because the Actiontec gateway has a memory leak causing it to reboot when memory useage gets high.
My My Cloud works fine, but it says a relay connection is established. I’m still able to access MyCloud.com, use all the apps, and also WD Sync works on my work computer the same as it always has. Should I be concerned about this? I have tried a few things with port forwarding but I really don’t know a whole lot about what I’m doing. UPnP is enabled on the TP-Link. The DSL gateway is serving no purpose aside from acting as a modem now, the DHCP server is on the TP-Link.
