Client access does use a bunch of odd ports.  Chances are that you'll need
to be the DMZ machine to get it to work right.  Especially if you're using
Code/400.  The As/400 creates a connection from it to the client box (behind
your firewall).  If you don't forward that port correctly, it won't work.
DMZ is dangerous, though, so be sure you need it.  DMZ means near-wide-open
access from the web to your PC.

I'm using a LinkSys router and have no problems with connecting over the
cable modem through the router, and no problem with a dial-up modem to
another AS/400 at another client site.  Both work well and work
simultaneously.

This does trigger a thought in my mind though.  For other reasons all
together I have gone into the LinkSys router configuration under "Advanced"
and changed my machine to be in the DMZ.  Maybe thats needed for Client
Access?  If so, I lucked out.

Lester,
Check the archives for this because I know we've talked about it. I first
bought a LinkSys router that did exactly what you're describing, exchanged
it - same problem. Then I replaced it with a NetGear router and I've had no
problems since. But, others have posted that they use LinkSys with no
problems. Look for posts from John Taylor because he went all out looking
for the cause. I don't know what he wound up doing.
