Full resets and reboots didn't do anything. I might try contacting Apple if I have time in the next day or two. But, I'm getting tired. I'm thinking of just taking it back. Not being able to connect to my machine from work is a deal breaker for me.

The internal 10.0.x.x and 255.255.x.x subnets are typically used for larger organizations (thousands of machines). I don't know why the AEBS would be using that class of addressing, it's more complicated than your typical Class C addressing found in home networks (the 192.168.x.x and 255.255.255.x) The router has less to deal with, plus consumer routers typically suck when using a class B or A scheme.
My suggestion would be to configure the AE to use a class C addressing scheme, exactly like your linksys did. Otherwise your AE and your cable modem are actually on different networks. :P

Well, the 10.0.x.x was the factory default that Apple sent, and I clearly don't know much about what those numbers really mean or why they would choose that range. FWIW, I didn't have any problem with the DHCP functions of the router for my desktop or any of my peripherals connecting through WiFi. But are you suggesting that this might have been the source of my port forwarding problem?
Unfortunately, I can't test it now. I returned the damn thing. I might buy one again later, or at least try a different brand of 802.11n routers (suggestions?) because I would like the bandwidth for an Apple TV, among other things.
