Make yourself the DMZ host...

[url=Http://192.168.1.1][url=Http://192.168.1.1][url=Http://192.168.1.1][url=Http://192.168.1.1]Http://192.168.1.1[/url][/url][/url][/url]

login: <none>
password: admin

go there, and go to advanced, then DMZ Host, and enter your lan ip. And walla, you can connect.

I'm having the same problem with the same router.
I've set my computer as the DMZ and I still can't connect
I get the error:

Unable to connect (Can't assign requested address)

I've tried various tip on port forwarding on 133
and 6660-7000 and such.
but I have had no such luck.

I'm using the 4 port linksys router.
If any one can give me some advice I'd be
extremly grateful, thank!!

There have been many posts here about "Can't assign requested address", it means that server is unreachable to anyone. (prolly the admins have set to it to dns to a non-existant IP number). If you are trying to connect to random server, try connecting to a specific server on that network that you know is linked. Most networks will have a list of current servers on their website, try some of them (be aware that the list isnt a guarantee all of those listed are linked at any particular moment in time)
