Can't find port triggering feature in fonera. I't needen for some games and video streaming services. See wikipedia for a description: +++++++++++ Port triggering is a way to automate port forwarding in which outbound traffic on predetermined ports ('triggering ports') causes inbound traffic to specific incoming ports to be dynamically forwarded to the initiating host, while the outbound ports are in use. This allows computers behind a NAT-enabled router on a local network to provide services that would normally require the computer to have a fixed address on the local network. +++++++++++ Nowadays any router have this feature.

Actually, I think the Fonera already applies this technique, using the nf_conntrack_* modules. However, this port triggering isn't something that can be enabled in general and then work for every port and protocol, it needs explicit support for each protocol.

Looking at the module list, I think the Fonera currently supports: PPTP, FTP, H323.

Is there a specific protocol that is causing you problems?
