    I would like to access my PC and Tivo from the internet. I have a Actiontec 701 DSL modem connected to my WRT54GS + Thibor 14. My Tivo and PC are connected to my 54GS. I setup DDNS on the linksys and setup my account on Dyndns. What else do I need to do at this point?

    access your PC, as in files? or control your desktop? or both

    You'll probably need to try remote desktop, flashing a firmware version that supports vpn endpoint capability, or try remote client base software:

    My Tivo has a webserver so if I can access it remotely I can schedule programs to be recorded. I would also like access to certain files, for example letting family members view photos.

    It was recommended that I enable DMZ on my DSL modem and direct it to the IP address of my WRT54GS. Does this sound correct?

    well that would make it so nothing is getting blocked from the modem, it would all be in the WRT54GS, not a bad place to start.

    you *COULD* forward port 80 to your tivo and setup IIS as an FTP server pointing to your computer (port 21) and access either one via your Internet IP address.

    otherwise i think you might need to setup a VPN, which is what i do and then i can RDC to my local computers, access shares etc
