How to fix port forwarding problems with Clear Wireless

774 - Neuron Connection - Pattern
The Problem:
You use Clear Wireless (ClearWire) for your internet service and you cannot set up Remote Desktop on Windows 7.

The Cause: Whereas most internet provider provided devices just function as gateways, the Clear device functions as both a router and a gateway rolled into one unit.   It also uses a different subnet.  You also have to use a separate router with the Clear device if you have more than one computer (what fun).

The Solution: Just point all relevant traffic from the Clear device to your normal router, and set up your computer normally from there.
