i have a few comments. First, in the section Routers And NAT Enabled Broadband Modems, there appears to be a typo. i want to correct it, but don't know what the intended meaning is. In item 2, the second bullet reads
If your router supports MAC address binding, do so save/apply your changes, and skip down to the "Port Forwarding Through The Router" section.
The bit "...do so save/apply..." isn't grammatically correct and is confusing. it could be as simple as "...do so, save/apply..." but like i said, i don't know what was originally meant.
Second, i have added a sub-section called IP Forwarding Through the Broadband Modem. it details what i did to get green smiley faces after months of trying different things (and reading this page), so i think it is important. you might have further comments or refinements, but please keep something to its effect in the page, since that simple change has made a ten-fold increase in my download speed (and green smileys).
Third, i never did set up static IP addresses on my LAN, as described. i still use DHCP, though i do port-forward through my router to my dynamically assigned (but consistent) IP address. so i don't think static IP addressing is necessary.

Moved from main page:
Adding notes for Linux
I have some notes for linux based distributions. I wanted to explain how by default 'secure' linux requires the user open the ports using the iptables commands
iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 52565 -j ACCEPT iptables -I INPUT -p udp --dport 52565 -j ACCEPT
Give me that old time merciless editing to improve my contribution

refactoring this page
Who is reworking this page? I propose a structure whereby there is a general overview of the nat problem and then platform specific help
so the main headings are
1 nat problem overview 2 router configuration issues 3 windows platforms 4 mac platforms 5 linux platforms 6 other platforms a games consoles b mobile phones and wireless handhelds 7 still not working?
