I am trying to set up this Netgear SRMX3205 in a *very* simple way, but I'm having no luck. I have a static IP address for the WAN connection, its LAN IP is 192.168.0.1, it will not do DHCP. All ports to forward to 192.168.0.2. That's it. I can't seem to manage this. attached is an image of the Security > LAN WAN Rules page. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? I have no connection to anything on the public IP from the outside.

Thanks for your response, but I found my answer through other expert sites. I'm a bit disappointed there were no other attempt at this question. I'll give you the point for being the sole respondant.

jmarkfoley--You are welcome.
But, if you are willing, it would make this thread much more valuable (since it is archived) if you tell us the fix.  
Thanks.

sorry, I meant to. The problem was simple: I transposed a couple of digits in the gateway IP. Another forum participant persuaded me to let go of my obsession with firewall settings and double-check (more like quadruple-check) my WAN settings. Even at that I had to inspect it several times before I saw the error; we see what we expect to see!
