    ok i play games that is all i do with my router.

    when i have access to cable is there anyway that i can set it (WRT54G) up to just forward ports automagically without setting up rules.?
    i play warcraft three which uses port 6112-6119 not at the same time.

    anyone who can help me with this router ?
    it would be greatly appreciated

    also i have a friend who has a netgear something 54 i would like to do the same with.

    You have to use Port Triggering.
    For warcraft just forward the following ports:
    4000 and

    that is true but with the sveasoft firmware i do not see the option for port trggering on the config page. there is one when i ssh into the router but it does not seem to do anything when i set it up.

    i save changes it just goes to the successful page then back to the config page and it is again blank.

    i imagine that this prob will be fixed on the next pub release of the sveasoft firmware

    port triggering should be in the apps and gaming tab if i am not mistanken.

    i am not sure why this would happen maybe your nvram is currupt. you cannot fix it with a simpe hardrest or power cycle. but you have to run a script i forget what it was. assoon as i find it i will post it.

    You can erase nvram by "cat /dev/zero >/dev/mtd/3" from telnet console. Ignore the error "No space left on device" (/dev/zero has no end-of-file). Before ersasing doublecheck with "cat /proc/mtd" that mtd/3 actually refers to nvram
