    Hello all...

    I'm a Command and Conquer junkie and just recently installed the wireless router in my network. When I was connected directly to the cable modem I was able to play, but as soon as the router was installed I haven't been able to since.

    I've tried everything described in the various FAQs on the net... port forwarding, port triggering, DMZ. Nothing works. The 2 possibilities that come to mind is set up an IP passthrough or simply disconnect the router and run a loooong cable back to the computer from the cable modem.

    Is there a firmware hack that will let me set up a pass through since DMZ doesn't work?

    If the DMZ doesn't work then you might try running Hyper WRT or dd-wrt, I think that dd-wrt MAY have something like this. with Hyper WRT my DMZ works perfectly...

    Do you play online games using this configuration?

    My brother runs Hyper WRT and it doesn't allow IP Passthrough. So far, none of the firmwares I've seen even mention this as an ability. I would think since this is such a drastic change from the original that it would come up somewhere in the added features list.
