Problem with Alchemy and Port Forwarding

    Hi, I am new to this, but I have read as much as I could find and still no luck. I have a WRT54G with Alchemy V1 (public release), I think my router is a v3, but haven't checked the back. (bought about 7 months ago).

    I have bought the nslu2 and wvc54g camera. The camera and server work fine on the lan, but no luck from outside. I setup port forwarding both in the router and in the devices and can't get it to work.

    I CAN get to remote management on the linksys router from outside, but nothing else.

    Do you have to set up some other setting? Do I need to do something like Port Triggering? I checked and Time Warner doesn't block the 1024 and 1025 ports I am using...I have tried from a number of different networks to make sure my work or whatever wasn't blocking the port...I am STUCK. Help please.

    Viewing from outside the LAN

    I've discovered the following:

    However, wireless setup and being able to view the camera from outside the LAN is a different thing altogether. There is a good site with some very helpful info by "Chez Paul" and I've found that setup info to be helpful. As to getting the camera where you can view it via the web, outside of the LAN, here are a couple of additional essential pointers:

    1. Gateway setting on the camera must be the gateway to the wireless main router -- not to an access point off of the router.
    2. SSID "appears" to need to be same as the wireless router AP, but not totally convinced of that.
    3. If you have a wireless extender, in my case it is the Netgear WGX102 (IP over electric lines), you can force the camera to connect thru it by specifying the camera's gateway as the IP address of the access point. However, you cannot then view the camera from outside the LAN.
