Linksys routers have the ability to provide port triggering, which permit me
to use iChatAV from behind one router to behind another.

It is in the Advanced area, under Port Forwarding.  Click on the Port
Trigger button, and add the necessary mappings.  The mappings that I have

Application Name    Trigger Port Range   Incoming Port Range
----------------    ------------------   -------------------
DirectX-7               47624-47624         47624-47624
DirectX-8                6073-6073           6073-6073
DirectX-7-8              2300-2400           2300-2400
RTSP                      554-554            6970-7170
iChat AV                 5060-5060          16384-16403

This gives me working DirectX connections (for PC games), RTSP for QuickTime
Streaming, and iChat AV.
