I'm no home router expert, but have to say that I've tried and tried and 
tried to get a couple different home routers I've been through to 
forward *anything*. Sometimes I've seen nebulous complaints in manuals 
that my router shouldn't be expected to forward anything if it's not got 
a static IP address on the WAN side (why the one would be a condition of 
the other, I don't know). Generally speaking it hasn't worked. I haven't 
tried a Linksys router -- but my d-link and netgear routers have both 
had problems forwarding anything.
