Confused

I'm trying to do port forwarding on the Cincinnati Bell offered Westell 6100 to be able to connect remotely to slingbox and also eventually provide access to a home internet server.

I'm not a network expert... I have spent hours trying to get port forwarding to work on the Service Configuration screen - I can only add the Slingbox as a Dynamic Service, not a Host Service to the "Default" configuration. After hours, I found I could add to a new Service Configuration, but I can't make that the active configuration - it seems Cincinnati Bell has shut down this option and forces you to use "Default" only.

Are they any options to get the 6100 to work? Do I need to request a different DSL modem?

This has been extremely frustrating, so many thanks in advance to whoever might be able to shed some light here.

Steve

Correction - now I can't replicate adding the SlingBox as a host service in a new configuration - don't know what is different now. Any help out there would be greatly appreciated!

Tried that earlier - set up the service as described, but I'm unable to enable it as a Host - will only let me enable it as Dynamic, which won't work for access remotely. Any other ideas?

OK - stranger yet, I was able to change the port forwarding via a Safari browser on my Mac. Could this be due to a firewall issue on my Vista PC? Why would a browser prohibit me from changing settings on the Router?

Hard to say, could be a number of things. All's well that ends well.
