My router does not log enough events. It doesn't even log port triggering even though it is supposed to. I had to use Wireshark to even see relevant packets to find a port use in the triggers. I still don't know if port triggering is working because I can't get the router to log the triggers.

What ports did you end up using? Anything that Cox blocks? Also, have you confirmed it doesn't disconnect when direct to the modem? I wonder if maybe with the new router, you got a new WAN IP that is in a different block and having some kind of routing problem to certain servers.
