Ok, according to the documentation that I found on your Router, they have certain preset applications from factory that are allowed to pass through the firewall. In order to configure the firewall, if you installed the software that came with it, then you should have a "Hub Manager" in the bottom right corner. Open that and get a screenshot of what the configuration screens look like. If you haven't used the software, type the following into an address bar: http://gateway.2wire.net As I say, this comes from the PDF file at
http://downloads.bt....n_Retail_05.pdf

Please get a screenshot of this port forwarding/firewall feature.

Well man, I ran across a router one time made by Netgear that had the port forward option. I set everything up, still didnt work, looks like kind of the situation that you are having here. But I fixed that problem. Bought another router. And I can tell you one thing, it wasn't a Netgear. This little story was written for one reason. I would suggest trying another modem/hub/switch/router whatever that thing you have is, lol. Sounds to me like they tried to put too much on those BT devices and half the stuff doesn't work. Everyone is having trouble with those devices, not just you. I would recommend a brand that is trusted by most, such as D-Link or Linksys. These are products that are in use in probably 75% of homes and the configuration is pretty standard, but it works.
