    Hey guys! I've been struggling with this for 5+ hours, so I could definitely use some help. I can't get any port-forwarding working whasoever, but to keep this thread simple, let's talk about getting Subsonic working, which is on port 4040. This is what my network looks like.

    Comcast Modem --> Wireless Router A ---(wireless signal)-> Wireless Router B ----(ethernet)---> PC with Subsonic

    The routers are running Toastman's firmware, with router A acting as an Access Point and router B acting as a Wireless Client. As I said earlier, for Subsonic, I need port 4040 open. On Wireless Router A, I have port 4040 opened and being forwarded to Wireless Router B's IP Gateway Address. Then I have Wireless Router B set to forward port 4040 to my static IP address set on my PC. This doesn't work. So what will?

    Have you port forwarded from Router A direct to the IP address of your PC?

    Yes, and that hasn't worked :(. I'm trying to set Router B to a wireless Ethernet bridge so I'm not under a double NAT but for some reason I don't get internet access when I have it set that way. I can access my other router wirelessly, but I can't connect to the internet.

    When setting to "Wireless Ethernet Bridge", be sure to disable DHCP and set the bridge to something like 192.168.1.2 so that it does not conflict with your router.

    Please post a screenshot of the Basic settings page on the bridged router. Maybe there's something that was overlooked?
