    I have a Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Broadband Router in my home network.
    I have an 8-port hub sitting behind the router going to smart-jacks in
    different rooms. On one of the ports on the hub, I have my newly
    purchased server connected.

    My problem, I am trying to access the server remotely and outside of my
    network but I cannot. I cannot even get to my router. The router gets
    to the internet ok. I have enabled remote admin on my router [port 8080]
    and I have also subscribed to a dynDNS service. My server has a static
    IP address

    I need help. Can someone advise me on what I need to change on my
    router to, at least, get to my network remotely?

    what have you tried and what worked?
    From your described setup you should be able to access the router on its management page remotely, but NOT the server.

    Some things to verify:
    - that your dyndns service works and that the address is updated. Go on their home page from your serve4, log-in and verify that the address they see is the same as the address they store
    - that you enabled the remote access on the router
    - that you can log from the outside of your network. The dyndns should give you the IP and the router should answer.

    Now, to access your server, you need to use port redirection to redirect incommming requests to the server for the services you want. You would then access the server with the same dyndns as the router, but on a given port.
    Example: FTP server. Port 21
    redirect thye port 21 from the router to the port 21 of the server ( and access from the outside with:
    ftp <mydyndnsserver>
