Hi guys,

I have looked everywhere in the config on my router for this but so far no luck.

I have a Linksys WRT150N

I need to pass  my external IP to a device on my internal network. IE the external interface on my firewall

Any ideas as to where i would find this? Is it even possible with this router?

It's done through the DMZ setting.
source IP Address select "any" and "destination" IP Address the IP address of the device internally.

That's the correct area. Your router should support this, you may need to get updated firmware.

Are you trying to forward all your traffic or you want to remote access your PC from you External IP. If is the case then you have to configure port forwarding and forward port 3389 to your desired internal IP Address

I resolved this in the end.

To achieve what i wanted to do you would need to set the router to Bridge Mode Only thus disabling all of the features in the router and effectivly turning into a modem.

So i purchased a cheap cisco modem and an access point.....
Set the firewall to do the PPOE bit and job done tick the box.

Thanks for all your input!!
