ASUS WL-500W Wireless Router supports

Home gateway mode is for home or
SOHO users who want to connect to
their ISPs for Internet services. In this operation mode, NAT, WAN connection,
Internet firewall functions are supported.
Router mode is for office use where multiple routers and switches co-exist.
You can set up routing policies in this mode; however, NAT function is disabled.

this mode, all Ethernet ports on WL-500W (4 LAN ports and 1 WAN port) are
recognized as LAN ports. WAN connection, NAT, and Internet firewall functions
are disabled in access point mode.
