For some reason, I am unable to play "streaming video" through my Windows
Media Player. Someone told me that it is probably that Linksys WRT54G
router causing the problem by blocking with the firewall. Are there
certain ports that I can forward to "fix" this situation?

I am runnng Windows XP SP1 with 1GB RAM and all patches u-to-date. My
connection is DSL 1.5/384K.

Thanks!

Take note about the NAT router and the security risks. You should enable
the XP ICF or some other FW while UPnP is enabled or doing port
forwarding of ports with the router in the future.
