I am sure you have done this but have you gotten newest firmware for your router ?
also if you use msn messenger or yahoo or even America on
line does it do same thing when you use it web cam functions ?
just looked at your router it is same as my friends
i still think heart of problems is in a port or a firewall issue ?
correct me if I am wrong dmz blocks from outside and you can change ports with it enable ..cause it just acts as an access points and forwards everything on ?? memory is just hazzy
yeah i would check to see about windows xp firewall or even firewall in your router ...I would use dhcp to assign it all and then take off dmz and assign ports to see what is going on ... but hey that is just my two cents
