Ok,, dmz host seems to work (mostly)
Setting the android to DMZ seems to have worked but not without glitches.
All is well when the android calls out..
When someone calls in to the android, it will only connect if you wait for it to ring a full three times. Ya.. you have to count, 1 ring, 2 ring, 3 ring, then push the answer button. If you answer it before the 3rd ring, the call doesn't connect and to the person calling in, it just keeps ringing.
I did try to answer the call on the first ring, bring up the dial pad and push 1 but that didn't work.
Also, I absolutely hate having this thing on open to the world on the DMZ.. Seems like that's just asking for trouble.
As for the play station and plug-and-play, not sure what you mean but I had to manually configure each and every port to get the PS3 and Call of duty to work.. doesn't seem very plug and play to me.
Also, some free advice: NEVER LET ANYONE STICK YOU WITH A WESTELL MODEM. I have a westell and it is a piece of crap.. If you ever get internet and they want to give you a westell, tell them absolutely not! This thing has zero support, zero useful documentation and is slow as molasses to configure. WESTELL MODEMS SUCK
