I have been really struggling on port forwarding a device that is connected to the wired ports on a WET610 Wireless Bridge.
Things I have tried:
The bridge seems to be doing exactly what its suppose to do on the local network but is not allowing me to see the device over the internet with port forwarding. If I perform a port check with by browser it will say its open when I have the device connected to the router but will not see it open when it's connected to the bridge.
It seems that the bridge is not completely transparent and is not passing everything, Please help!

What exactly you are trying to do? Let me know the purpose to see the device over the internet? What port number did you try to open? Let me know the name of the ISP? What IP address do you get when a computer connected to the modem directly?

I just realized my post never made it out here. I replied to you post the same day but just now decided to take a look to see if there was any new activity and discovered my post never got posted. Ugh! It was fairly lengthy with detail but I will try and summarize.
I'm connecting to several aquarium controllers that control my aquariums. Only one of them is downstream of a wireless bridge and I can not see my device on the router. I can see the bridge but not the device. If I use an application software on my internal network it has not problem seeing it on the IP address I have assigned.
I tried to open 10002 and I already have 10001, 10003 and 10004 open for other controllers with no problem. If I move 10002 device to a wired port on the router, no problem.
My ISP is AT&T.
I have a fixed IP of 192.168.1.82. I assigned to a static only after I saw what the DHCP served it. I tried both, DHCP and static - no luck.
I have a friend of mine with the same bridge, same problem using a comcast cable modem and Netgear router.
Really thinking there is an issue with the bridge design.
