    I've been struggling with my Verizon network extender, trying to get it set up to prioritize all traffic to and (more importantly) from my router. My most recent call to Verizon tech support ended with a recommendation that I put the extender in a DMZ. Reading about this option makes me nervous, but if that's the way to go I'm all for it. I have a few questions:

    1. I have my extender set up with a static IP. Can I just set up port forwarding based on the IP? If so, what would the rule look like? I know the source address, but I'd like to prioritize all traffic to and from, and I'm not sure what to put in that last dropdown and the related field (QoS > Classification page).

    2. If the DMZ is the way to go, How do I set that up? I have three settings: Destination Address, Destination Interface and Source address restriction. It seems counterintuitive to call my internal device the "destination", but the interface dropdown leads me to believe that's what they're talking about. And as for the source address restriction, I'm assuming that means "which external addresses can connect", which again seems counterintuitive to call those "source" addresses but I'll go with it.

    I'm running EasyTomato on an Asus RT-N16, but the screens I've seen look basically identical to those of TomatoUSB. I would appreciate any help in getting this set up.
