Question about Computers & Internet
I have DSL internet at my house using a Zhone1511-a1 modem/single port router provided by the ISP. I have a Linksys WRT54G wirless router that is hooked up to the modem via ethernet port. With this set up am i actually behind two routers? Im having issue with internet speed im thinking this could be a cause. (ps3 online gaming & movie buffering on apple TV) I put my PS3 in the dmz on the Linksys router but im guessing with this setup i am still behind the DMZ on Zhone 1511. Any info on this would be greatly appreciated!

SOURCE: How To Make a DMZ
A router normally stops incoming Internet traffic from getting on your network, unless the traffic is in response to one of your computers or when using port forwarding. But instead of discarding the incoming traffic or using port forwarding, you can send incoming traffic to one computer on your network by establishing a "Default DMZ Server". (DMZ = humorous reference to "Demilitarized Zone".) This avoids you having to figure out what ports an Internet application wants ? by throwing all ports open for that computer. For regular network operation, NETGEAR recommends you do not use a DMZ. A computer with DMZ loses firewall protection, and is exposed to exploits from the Internet. If compromised, your own computer can attack the rest your network. Instead of DMZ, use port forwarding, as described in How is Port Forwarding Configured? However, the DMZ server feature is helpful: * When you have a problem connecting to an Internet service. Setting up a DMZ will determine whether a closed port is responsible for the problem. * With some online games and videoconferencing applications that are incompatible with NAT. Follow the procedure under your router model to create a DMZ To Create a DMZ for RP614, MR814, FVS318, FVM318, WGR614 1. Open a Web browser, and type the router's IP address (The router's default IP address is 192.168.0.1). Click Go. 2. Enter the username and password for the router (Default username is admin and password is password). 3. From the browser Main Menu select Advanced > Security. Some routers, such as the MR814, use the WAN Setup Options, page, instead. 4. Enter the server's IP address. 5. Click Apply. To Create a DMZ for FR114P, FR114W, FM114P, FR328S, FVL328 1. Open a Web browser, and type the router's IP address (The router's default IP address is 192.168.0.1). Click Go. 2. Enter the router's username and password (Default username is admin and password is password). 3. From the browser Main Menu select Advanced > Security. 4. Click Rules. 5. Check the box for Default DMZ Server, and enter the server's IP address the corresponding box for the IP Address. 6. Click Apply. To Create a DMZ for RH340, RH348, RT328, RT338, RT311, RT314, RP114, RO318, MR314, DG814 * Going through the GUI and going to Port Forward in the left menu bar. * For RM356: Going through telnet and from the main menu go to menu #15. 1. Open a Web browser, and type the router's IP address (The router's default IP address is 192.168.0.1). Click Go. 2. Enter the router's username and password (Default username admin, password 1234). 3. From the Main Menu of the browser interface, under Advanced, click Port Forwarding to view the port forwarding menu. 4.

Darvin, gotta love your ISP. Never fear......
if it isn't too much of a problem (knowing you have wireless setup done already), then do a factory reset on your router ** remember to copy the WEP Key if you have, or recall the PASS PHRASE so you won't have to reset all wireless devices ** Reset is located on back, you need a ball point pen to reach the reset switch.
Reset process: unplug, take ballpoint pen & insert into reset switch & plug unit back in. Sometimes tricky, but you should notice green light goes to yellow/orange upon resetting.
RESET or NOT - you want the Linksys set for ::
Connection Type - AUTOMATIC (for automatic discovery)
Router IP Address - 192.168.2.1
DCHP - ON, Addresses - 192.168.2.100 and allow 5-50 users
(for security, assign the number of DESKTOP + WIRELESS expected users +1, this way you don't get overrun without knowlege)
Take the cable from Aztech ETHERNET OUT to WAN on Linksys. (usually BLUE) (??) not 100% sure as I have the little silver pocket edition of the same Router. - power cycle (turn both DSL modem & Linksys off for 20 seconds. turn on DSL Modem, wait till it's about as ready as possible, turn on Linksys, should only take 20-30 seconds to power up & recognize.
VERIFY SETTINGS: access router - 192.168.2.1, goto STATUS. you should see IP Addressing, SubNet, DNS1 & DNS2 settings. If you do not, then you have no internet connection.
Setup Linksys Router with COnnection Type: PPoE, you will need your ISP assigned ID & Password. Follow all other instructions properly.

Do you have a static IP to portforward with? i would not recommend DMZ because most routers lie - they still use a firewall even with DMZ.
