    Question Unable to Forward Ports on Trendnet ADSL Modem/Router

    I have a Trendnet TEW-723BRM ADSL router/modem. It works well in all respects other than the fact that I can't get the router to forward/open ports. The setup is a little different than other Trendnet routers, but fairly straightforward. Here is a link to the emulator for the port...

    Cox or FiOS? - DC area

    My FiOS contract is up, and although the service is good, I hate the fact that you're stuck with their router. So I'm thinking of switching to Cox. The FiOS Quantum router is mediocre at best and not compatible with MESH networking. I can't access the ONT to change routers so can't go...
