1: Comcast cable 2: Linksys WCG200 Okay, I can ping my external IP. But no matter what ports I forward, I can't get anything (FTP, IRC, HTTP) to connect from the outside. I've even tried dumping the inside machine in question into the DMZ. I've done this before with other Linksys products and routers from other manufacturers. It's not exactly rocket-science. Anyone have any clue what the heck is going on? Note: Client firewall is off. Tried turning the router firewall off. Also, additional weirdness. Even with the router set to drop pings on the WAN interface, I can still ping it.
