Windows 7: Help configuring my home network.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Yeah, bridged mode may need some setting up, simple if router supports the authentication method of ISP. Even though DMZ is not a very safe method, it shouldn't hurt as it is your DDWRT router that is being exposed (which would be also if bridged mode worked).

So can you access your media from the Net now? Also, is your Public IP (the one modem gets from ISP) static or dynamic? You may not be able to access if it is dynamic and change while you are out at another city

Windows7 64bit Ultimate.

I am using Plex. It's a login and password protected monthly subscription model. Guess Plex takes care of that by itself cuz my IP isn't static and it has been working for me since the whole thing got fixed.
