SBS 2003 RWW - 2nd NIC, new Modem

SBS installtion working for couple years.  Went from 2 nics to 1 a while back and now trying to get 2nd nic workign again.  Unfortunately I added a new DSL modem at the same time that has it's own IP address on PPPoe on the modem which is connected directly to 2nd NIC.   Internet works fine for all but RWW does not work at all, port scan from remote shows not ports open or listening.  Not sure if problem is the new network connection configuration or DNS, or RWW config, etc.  Using SBS Firewall only - the modem is directly connected.

Found the problem- The new Motorola modem was at and I didn't see any DCHP settings on the gui so I had set my NIC address to which worked for outgoing but after digging through the tech page on the modem I saw the address as the DCHP start & end so I set the IP to DCHP and it works.  What I'm not sure of is if I'd be better off setting to permanently because I don't see anywhere to disable DCHP on the modem.
