Port Forward with multiple routers/Air Port

  jjacobweston 12:24 02 Nov 2007

I'm having some trouble setting up port forwarding on my network, and it's really becoming a problem.

I'm running a PC with XP home, but our network is a little rigged. We have a DSL modem connected through ethernet to an Air Port Extreme (newest model). Because my PC is in an odd part of the house, it gains access to the network through the ethernet jack on an Air Port Express that is configured as part of the extreme's extended network.

I fear there is no way to tunnel ports through this network. Am I right? The ethernet jack on the Express is intended really only for printers and other peripherals, I believe.

For instance, I can't set up a Ventrillo server on my computer for a few friends, and I can't use my Blizzard patch downloader to full capacity because it sees my computer as behind a firewall.
