So here's where I'm at in this adventure:  Connected the DIR-868L to an Arris NVG468MQ WAN connection.  Had WiFi from the 868L right away.  Disabled the Arris radios.  All good so far.

Then I went into the Arris DMZ screen.  I enabled DMZ.  A dropdown next to "Type:" defaults to "Share IP address with WAN."  There is a grayed-out box next to "Default Server Internal Address:"  Passthrough Mode: has 3 dropdown choices: DHCPS Dynamic, DHCPS-fixed and Manual.  If I select "DHCPS-fixed" there is a dropdown with every single device in the house, including "dlinkrouter."  So I haven't a clue about what to do in this screen.  DMZ is currently disabled until I get more advice from you.

Also on the DMZ page is the following: "WARNING: Having DHCP Reservation enabled can cause problems with DMZ features. (DHCP Reservation is currently enabled.)"  So I went to the Advanced - DHCP Reservation screen via a link on the DMZ screen.  There is a button to disable auto-reservation.  Under "Manual DHCP Reservation" there is a dropdown next to "Select MAC Address:"  That dropdown has the MAC addresses for every device in the house.  There is then a box that isn't grayed out next to "Manually Add MAC Address:"  That box populates when I select from the dropdown with the MAC addresses.  Finally, there is an item that says "Reserved IP Address:"  Beside that is a list of ip addresses ranging from 192.168.254.10 - .210.

All of the computers and phones are connected to the 868L and able to access the web, so that's a good thing.  So is there a problem with DMZ not being enabled?

Now to connect the USB network drive, which was the point of this exercise!  [fingers crossed]

Got the network access storage working on the DIR-868L USB.  (yay).  Accessing the net thru' the 868 also.  As mentioned in previous post (in some detail), didn't get DMZ configured.  Oh well.  Appreciate all the help!

I would ask your ISP which DMZ or IP Passthru setting they recommend for use with a connected external router. They should be able to tell you.

Glad you got it working for the most part.
