    It's the router that does the address translation and where the mapping would be needed.

    An actual modem-only unit can only connect to one device - computer or router - and has no address translation so no port forwarding is needed.

    If you can connect more that one thing, it has a router included.

      If you want further advice you might try including the make and model of your modem in future.
