    Hi. I hope this is an easy question. I have 2 routers. The first router is a WRT54GSV4, the second router is a BEFW11S4. I am using the BEFW11S4 basically as a hub. DHCP off, This all works well on the internal network. I used to have a video server directly to the WRT54G. Forwarded port 148 to I was able to access it from outside my network. Since putting the BEFW11 in the mix, I cannot access it from the outside. The video server is now off of the BEFW11 along with another device. I didnt feel like running another cat5 wire. Do I need to forward the port on the BEFW11 as well? I doesnt seem like it makes sense. What am I missing?

    how do you connect the BEFW11?
    to use it as a switch, you need to input a cable from the LAN part of the WRT to the LAN part of the BEFW (use one of the 4 LAN ports). If you use the WAN port on the BEFW, then you need to define the route, ie: define the port redirection from the WRT to the BEFW and then from the BEFW to the server.
