I've been looking at the port assignments on my router in the linked Open-WRT Wiki, and I'm not sure if the column that reads Network is the actual physical port, or if the Port Assignment is the actual physical port.

Note that I'm also reading about how to setup a DMZ on OpenWRT and that's how I got to the port assignments document in the first place.

I think you may be a bit confused, it doesn't say Network and Port Assignment, it says Network Port Assignment. What it is telling you is that the firmware (WRT) refers to the physical LAN port #4 on the router as port 0.

Notice this I'm using port 0, which is actually labeled as Ethernet port 4 on my physical router. from how to setup a DMZ on OpenWRT.

So those aren't table headers, I just thought I saw table if they say port 0 | lan 4 which side refers to the physical port? port 0 or lan 4? lan 4? – leeand00 Nov 1 '11 at 6:05
Lan 4 is the physical port. – tfitzgerald Nov 1 '11 at 17:00
