OK, I have bought this router and succesfully managed to use it to connect to the internet, but I found out after a couple of days of usage that my ports were blocked. I found this site, tried all the combinations ever possible (btw the router isn't listed in the big router list) but couldn't make it forward my ports. Without the router I can connect to the net normally and have all ports open for anything I want.
My net provider gave me a little modem called: Scientific Atlanta 2200 that recieves internet from tv cable, then splits it up to my phone line and my pc. The internet connections TC/IP used for it are all set on Obtain adress automaticly.
My first question is, when taking note of my ip, dns and stuff like that so I can set my router not to be on DHCP is what ip, dns, gateway etc should I provide, the one I get from when the router is pluged in my pc, or the one from when the router is not plugged in? (I tried with both settings and still couldn't forward my ports)
Second question is: How to make the router allow my ports to be open? I tried almost all combinations, my router started even acting crazy after some of them, and couldn't make it work except after a reset and plug out/ plug in from power source.
What you are saying sounds very logicall, I just want to open ports for utorrent and worms armageddon for now, have no clue which service to pick.
I need to open this ports for worms: "To ensure successful usage your machine requires outgoing connections on TCP ports 80 and 6667, as well as on TCP ports 17010, 17011 and 17012. If you want to be able to host a game you will have to redirect incoming packets on the TCP ports to your machine."
And for utorrent any port is good, let's say 30506
on virtual server type: didn't select anything service name: I wrote utorrent (I don't think it matters) forward port: 10000 - 60000 local port: 10000 - 60000 Local server ip: 192.168.16.105 (the ip entered in my ip configuration)
