comment Access MSSQL server 2005 over Internet
The connection could be blocked at a few different places. Does the service hosting the website allow outbound connections on that port? Do you have a router on your LAN with a built-in firewall? Also, your ISP could be blocking that port as well.

comment How do I connect to NAMED INSTANCE of SqlServer 2008 running on custom port from another network?
Are your instances set up to use static tcp/ip ports instead of dynamic ones? Are you sure the routers are forwarding the correct source port to the correct destination port?

comment Isolating a computer in the network
+1 for cheap solutions. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't you want the trusted PC's under a second router? This would add another firewall between them and the untrusted PC. Although you say ADSL isn't supported, couldn't he do a hybrid of your two solutions. Get a second router and put DD-WRT on it. Then, jack that into the port on the ADSL router.

comment Isolating a computer in the network
This isn't necessarily a DMZ situation. A DMZ would leave the untrusted computer open to the Internet, at least on consumer level products. Just because he wants that computer isolated from the rest of the network does not mean he wants it open to access from the Internet.

comment Component Services Security Settings question
Correct, restarting the DTC could cause issues for applications using distributed transactions. Under the "My Computer" section of the component services configuration, there is a subfolder for the DTC. Under this, you can see any active transactions and view some transaction statistics. This may help you and the sys admin decide if restarting the DTC will be detrimental to any other apps. Other than that, only you guys can decide when to restart.
