I actually contacted my representative in Massachusetts about this law (currently still in committee) because of its ridiculous requirements. House Bill No. 2743 is a misguided effort to prevent households from using routers which allow multiple connections to a single broadband line. Unfortunately the language in the bill seems to make any kind of NAT firewall illegal for any use at all. This would include the router I use at work to connect my company's network to our cable modem. Supposedly the Bill is being reworked to fix the language, but Iâ€™m not holding my breath.
