Something is really weird here.

After I did a factory reset, I was immediately able to ping every device in 
the DMZ.  However after I added my first rule to the DMZ interface which was 
"allow TCP from DMZ from * port  to NOT LAN to destination port 80" so that 
I could try out surfing on the DMZ, all of a sudden, I could no longer ping 
the DMZ from the LAN.  So I took the rule back out and I still can't ping 
the DMZ.  Something appears broke somewhere.  I haven't added any other 
rules on the than the one above and it broke on that one.  I took it out and 
it is still broke...

This is really strange.  It is almost like when I add a rule to the DMZ, it 
appears to be break the routing tables for some reason.  But even after I 
take it out again, it still appears broken.

I am at a loss.
