Brian, I have the EBR-2310
(http://www.dlink.com/products/?sec=0&pid=478), with firmware version
1.05. In their online firmware emulator, it says that the router has
"private port" forwarding, described as:
*/Private Port /* - The port number of the service being hosted by the
server computer on the LAN.
That is on the page
couldn't figure out how to invoke that capability, so I emailed them and
asked them to do it. They said: "This is a miss print in the support
documentation. The EBR-2310 does not support Port Address Forwarding".
Hence, my current dilemma. Once this is figured out, I get to see if I
can exchange it. I bought the router from CompUSA. I rather doubt
they'll take it back for reasons of functionality.
The WRT options mentioned already never occurred to me, but they're
certainly intriguing. I'm reading about those now, and I may end up
just picking up a cheap router that has a reasonably high-speed WAN port
and can use the WRT firmware. Thanks for those suggestions.
