Well i got a HG659 modem from Spark, but the thing is that I can't see my LAN and Wireless devices that are connected to the network on the gateway interface. I can however see two phones but because i want to do port forwarding i need to see the other devices.

Here is a example of the problem.

Do you have another router/dhcp server/etc.. on the network? My first guess would be they're on a different subnet or something than the modem and this never seems to work out from past experience.

I think that might be the same as mine.

When I set up port forwarding I needed to add the MAC address of the device to the list on the Internet, Forwarding menu where one creates the port forwarding entry (add-device, new).

Are the devices setup with static IP's? They might not be registering on the DHCP server.
IF SO...
I cant remember how it works on these Huawei modems, can you 'define' a custom device (specify a name & IP address) so its becomes an option for forwarding to?

From my experience the port mapping on the hg630b sucks big time. The hg659b is better however it still has its problems  could only get half the port mapping rules to works. Spark's customer service told me to contact Huawei for help
