This is my network archictecture - hope this helps.


                                        Internet
                                             |
                                        Modem (Linksys AM300) DHCP enabled
                                             |
                                        Router ( WRT610N)  DHCP enabled/clients bound to mac address IP's
                                             |
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    |                         |                      |                |              |                   
PC                         VOIP Box         Printer   iPhone (Wifi)   Laptop (Wifi)
(NIC has fixed IP)    

Here are the screenshots of what I've done in the router and modem.

I tried following the instructions at http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm  
but the instructions are a little vague as they don't seem to deal with having seperate modem and router.
I have assigned my PC NIC a fixed IP and have gone into the modem and router to set up the relevant port. I used PFPortChecker to check the config but it came back negative.

What do I need to do?

PS I'm also trying to set up Half-bridging as I heard it makes performance improvements.

If PC has static address of 192.168.2.104 and WRT610N WAN interface has address of 192.168.1.104 it should work.

So having port-farwarding on both devices is necessary?

Unless you use half-bridging.

In the AM300 lower the DHCP lease time to something short like 10min, then enable half bridge

In the WRT610N set it to get it's WAN ip address/gateway via DHCP from the AM300.

You need to know the WAN IP of the WRT610N - Is it 192.168.1.104?
It may easiest to set the WAN IP of the WRT610N in the DMZ on the AM300 then you only need to do the port forwarding on the WRT610N.

Ok, this is where I get confused. Using this exploded diagram can you please explain how to set up DMZ and half-bridge

Internet
|
Modem (Linksys AM300) DHCP enabled LAN IP 192.168.1.1
How do I set up half-bridge & DMZ?
Do I disable DHCP?
|
Router ( WRT610N) DHCP enabled/clients bound to mac address IP's
LAN IP 192.168.2.1
Should I set static IP? I thought the modem and not the router should be set to static when you use halfbridge?

For a half bridge setup you can ignore what CYaBro said (he's talking about a DMZ bypass setup).

In the AM300..

1: In Setup > Basic Setup > Internet Setup > Pppoa settings... check the half bridge option (if you don't see a half bridge checkbox update to the latest firmware)



2: Keep DHCP enabled but lower the client lease time to 20min (this is so if your isp assigned external IP address changes the WRT will renew from AM300 within 10min or so).

In the WRT610N

1: In Setup > Basic Setup > Internet Connection Type... ensure it's set to Automatic configuration - DHCP
