In any event, I consider this case closed. (See the <b>UPDATE</b> at the end of my edited question.) I'm still not able to print, but I've sent all my MAC addresses to my ISP, who will make sure their DHCP-assigned addresses are in the same subnet as my static IP.

Shields Up reported 22, 80, 88, 548, and 646 as open -- all as expected, due to services I'm running. We have a static IP and our ISP will hand out up to five additional dynamic IPs in the same subnet.

comment aDSL dropped packets, but only when more than one computer is connected
Laptop plugged via ethernet directly into Zoom 5751, and I get a public DHCP address that is on the same Class C subnet as my static IP and my ISP's edge router address. Shields Up reports five ports of the first 1056 open, as expected. I arbitrarily opened a port (nc -l 111) and it showed up as open. So the ZOOM does not seem to be blocking anything.

Google tells me the ZOOM 5751 is indeed a router/firewall. But the default web configuration IP address (192.168.1.1) doesn't work. So perhaps my provider has changed the configuration. I'll see if they'll let me in. In the mean time, what would you suggest I do if I do to see if the modem/router/firewall is what's messing me up? I don't even have an IP address that I can test for DHCP, right?

My ISP has not provided me a password for the ZOOM modem they provided. And caustic comments regarding my theories don't seem particularly helpful. Do you have suggestions for logging in to the modem? Are you familiar with this particular model, and can you verify that it may be interfering? Or are you just "shooting from the lip?" Please, be specific if you have anything.

Also, the Airport Extreme is configured as a bridge, and so should not be serving DHCP nor NAT, but only passing along DHCP and NAT from the D-Link router.

The ZOOM 5751 that my ISP provided does not appear to be a router nor firewall. It has only one ethernet port. The D-Link router is my DHCP/NAT server, doling out addresses in the 10.1.1.0/24 subnet. All other services (DNS, web, mail, MySQL, etc.) are coming from the Mac Mini, which is NOT serving DHCP nor NAT.
