I'll reply to this message as a way of getting back on my soap box.  I
have yet to find one retail router that can be used with VNC over the
wireless connection.  I don't know what they are missing, but it's not
the port forwarding part as I have another device that needs port
forwarding and it works fine over wireless.  As James found out, they
work fine over wired connections.

So, if someone knows of a retail router that can be used with VNC over
the wireless connection, please let us know.
