Qwest/Actiontec GT701-WG DSL Modem Port forwarding with dynamic IP

Hello.  I am having trouble setting up port forwarding on my Qwest/Actiontec GT701-WG DSL Modem.  I tried following all directions, and when I enter the current IP address (dynamically assigned), I just get to the main page of the modem Setup page.  Is this possible with a dynamic IP?  I realize that I may have to change things when a new IP is assigned.

Actually, I figured it out.  I found out that when you are on a machine on the same network, you don't get the same results that you do if you access it from externally.  Oops...   ;o)

I will hook you up with some points for at least responding.




Figured it out on my own.  Thanks for your effort though.
