I am trying to setup a router behind the rg 3800. I have a small biz out of my home and have a windows small business server domain. The router I am using is a Hawking 300N high gain mostly for the wireless coverage. The Hawking has all of the computers in my house. The phones and TVs are still on the RG. I have differnet subnets for the RG and Hawking (192.168.1.x for the RG and 192.168.169.x for the Hawking. I reset the hawking .. the RG recognizes it. I set DMZPlus mode and the get a successful message and then reboot the Hawking. The Hawking then shows the internet connection as the external address. Everything should be fine right? No .. because within two to three minutes the RG has reset the firewall on the hawking to "maximum protection" and the hawking is showing an external address on the 192.168.1.x network. Why wont the configuration hold? Is there possibly a problem with my router?
Any insights greatly appreciated.

Thought I would update this problem. It looks like I have got it working. The issue seemed to be that my router WAN IP address was constantly being updated by DHCP on the RG. I had seen this problem on a PC I was working on when the auto negotiate between the gigabit NIC and switch that only did 100M kept losing sync. The fix there was to to lock the speed of the NIC at 100. So I went to the RG and found the port that was connected to the router and took it off auto and set it to 100tx and no more getting kicked out of DMZ+ mode.
Hope this helps someone.
