    I'm having a hard time setting up port forwarding. My network setup looks like this:


    I have 2 routers to setup and I'm having trouble on the Netgear one. I can setup the WRT54G one ok just like I used to setup my older BEFSR41 router. But I just can't work out the correct ips for the Netgear unit. Please help !? :(

    couple of questions
    - why two routers?
    - what ports?
    - what firmware versions on each piece of hardware
    - are you using the WGA to act as a bridge between the WRT and the switch?

    Aha! I got it working. I have the ports opened on the WRT and the Netgear. Cool. The problem was I could work out what the LAN IP address was for the WRT so that I could open that port on the Netgear router. Now I got it figured out.

    Here's a question for you though jdepew, would turning off the router in the WRT increase speeds?

    Hi again,

    Apart from the connection going down at certain times, I'm relatively happy with my setup.

    However, I'm having 1 very annoying problem. I can't seem to get a port completely open on the inet.

    I've set it up both in the Linksys and Netgear routers but it's not 100% open for some reason.

    So I tried something else. I turned off the port forwarding in both the Linksys and Netgear routers and instead turn on DMZ.

    On the Netgear I have the DMZ IP set to the Linksys router. This then means that the Negear is going to open EVERYTHING on that IP up correct? Then I can just set port forwarding on the Linksys right?

    Just as a test, I setup DMZ on the Linksys as well and set that to the IP of the computer.

    Any experts care to help me on this :?
