    If it is anything like my verizon router, the problem is in the firmware...and they NEVER update the firmware. To make my games work, I had to completely disable all security for the entire unit and I also had to turn of WiFi (because I wasn't going to have unsecured WiFi). This was easy enough once I got in, but it wasn't easy getting in as the web configuration page was broken so that it would not accept a password unless I copy-pasted it from a text file. Then I plugged my WRT54G into it and used that for the hardware firewall and WiFi. The system isn't even in a DMZ...but since the WRT54G has a good firmware on it, a DMZ is not needed.

    Verizon should take a page from the book of Linksys: let other people make firmwares for you, and those firmwares will make your product a success. Less work and more money just for being open...nah, Verizon would never go for a concept like that...better to pay some junkie to throw together a broken router firmware that never works and never gets updates, that way you don't have to worry about people telling their friends to sign up.
