Firewall inside router?

Hi for some reason my server is on and off, when it's always plugged in, and this will become a big problem if I get members to register on my bulletin board. I am using a Network Everywhere 4-port router and my server is connected in. I did an experiment and connected my server directly into the modem and it connected just fine. I plugged it back into the router and it wouldn't connect. It's always on and off, and I'm getting very annoyed. I have checked and windows firewall is off. Is there a firewall in this router or something? here is what the router looks like
Does anybody know of a way I could disable a firewall that might be in the router? Or does anybody know of a way that could help me and get my server 'up'? Thanks ahead,

Nate. :tazz:

here is where your manual is :-)
I got this off page 58

I can’t get my Internet game, server, or application to work.
If you are having difficulties getting any Internet game, server, or application
to function properly, consider exposing one PC to the Internet using
DeMilitarized Zone (DMZ) hosting. This option is available when an application
requires too many ports or when you are not sure which port services to
use. Make sure that you disable all the forwarding entries if you want to successfully
use DMZ hosting, since forwarding has priority over DMZ hosting.
(In other words, data that enters the Router will be checked first by the forwarding
settings. If the port number that the data enters from does not have port
forwarding, then the Router will send the data to the PC or network device you
set for DMZ hosting.) Follow these steps to set DMZ hosting:
A. Access the Router’s web-based utility by going to or the
IP address of the Router. Go to the Advanced => Forwarding tab.
B. Disable or remove the entries you have entered for forwarding. Keep this
information in case you want to use it at a later time.
C. Click the DMZ Host tab.
D. Enter the Ethernet adapter’s IP address of the computer you want exposed
to the Internet. This will bypass the NAT firewall for that computer. Please
refer to “Appendix F: Finding the MAC Address and IP Address for Your
Ethernet Adapter” for details on getting an IP address.
Once completed with the configuration, click the Apply button and then the
Continue button.

i hope this helps :-)
