I struggled with this router but finally got it going. Here's my setup: I have a linux box that I want to ssh into from work. I do not have assigned static IPs from Verizon - I just update domain name via a service like dyndns.org. Internally (on my LAN), the linux box has been assigned a static IP address. These instructions are for port forwarding to an internal static IP (but it does seem that the router has the capability to port forward to a DHCP computer so long as it is specified not by IP but by the name the router uses for it).
Step 1: Turn off UPnP.
Step 2: Ensure your DHCP range leaves room for your static IP computers
The Verizon STB (Set Top Box) DVR/cable boxes are given the IP range 192.168.1.100-192.168.1.150. You should not choose a static IP in this range since it interferes with this predefined DHCP range and your IP will not be considered static. Plus, your box may collide with a Verizon STB you have in your house. In my case, I set the DHCP range from 192.168.1.100-192.168.1.254. This leaves 192.168.1.2-192.168.99 as acceptable static IP addresses (with 192.168.1.1 as the router IP). Note: you can skip this step if you are forwarding to a DHCP computer.
Step 3: Change your connection type to static
Note: you can skip this step if you are forwarding to a DHCP computer
From the main menu, click the "Advanced" icon from the top tool bar.
Step 4: Open up your firewall

The instructions didn't work for me.
The only way I can make my website work is by putting the webserver in the DMZone.
Following port forwarding doesn't work for me:
192.168.1.200 192.168.1.200 Any Any Nameserver - TCP 53 -> 53
UDP 53 -> 53
WEB - TCP 80 -> 80 Active
I have FiOS tripple bundle.
