@OP. If your WRT54G can run DD-WRT, do it. No need to thank me.
Port Triggering is not considered....reliable I guess is the best way to put it. I always compare Port Triggering to a Smoke Stack you see on Truck Rigs, the exhaust pipe with the flapping cover on top.

Thing is with Port Triggering is that it dosn't always work correctly.
