    Good evening,
    I am a long time windows person who just got a powerbook book and set up an airport extreme wireless network..have a cable modem. At the moment I have my powerbook connecting wirelessly and my XP Pro desktop connected to the LAN port in the back of the base station. Everything works and I can connect and do most of what I would like to do..except the video chat program ISPQ which is run from the windows xp desktop. I know there are problems when connected behind a router..I am able to send messages, but not receive them. So, I have been reading everything I can to configure the port masking from the powerbook to get it to work. To be honest, I am pretty comfortable working on computers but I am a total basketcase when it comes to networking and assigning numbers. There are instructions from ispq about setting up the airport with ports 2000-2003. Right now this is what I have:
    Public Port Private IP Address Private Port
    2000 2000
    2001 2001
    2002 2002
    2003 2003

    When I do an IP search on my desktop it says its address is and I tried changing the private IP addresses to that so it would look for that machine, but it didn't help. Was just hoping for some advice..don't want to give up if it is poosible.
