The problem with this is that you can't set up any kind of server. Peer to peer software such as Bit Tornado will always say that you are firewalled.
This can be especially confusing if you use a NAT router between the Arescom and your PCs, for example if you set up a LAN in your house. I fought the LAN router for hours, trying to figure out what was wrong, when the problem was not with the LAN router at all, but was with the modem/router.
So, how to configure the Arescom DSL modem/router when it can't be done? Answer: Hack into the thing and set it up the way that you want to. Details on the hack are here: »MSN Forum FAQ »How do I change the firewall settings, or any other advanced config. settings?
These modems are well out of their warranty date so hack away (keep in mind you might fry it).
