Hi all,

I recently purchased a WRT54G and am running it with the latest
official linksys firmware.

I used to have a BEFXXX Wireless B router.

In my old router I was able to setup port forwarding with different
inbound and outbound ports, but I cannot for the life of me see how to
do this on the WRT54G.

For example

I can easily setup standard port mappings like for SSH

Internet   ->  PORT 22   ROUTER  PORT 22 ->   COMPUTER

But I want say to do:

Internet   -> PORT 9212 ROUTER PORT 22 ->   COMPUTER

How can I do this?

Latest?  Ok, I'll assume v5 hardware and 1.00.04 firmware.  If you
have something else, kindly supply the real hardware and firmware
versions.

That would be a BEFW11S4 router.  I have a v4 incantation.

Yep.  Can't be done.  See:
 http://www.linksysdata.com/ui/WRT54G/v5/1.00.2/Port-Range-Forward.htm
No place to remap port numbers.

However, I just checked my WRT54G v3 running DD-WRT v23 12/25/05
firmware,

and you CAN remap port numbers.  It's not terribly clear in the
documentation:

but it's hinted at:

Note:  If you have a WRT54G v5, you cannot install alternative
firmware.
