Hi, Was your Router Provided to you by your ISP?? If so they could have Configured it to keep you from configuring the Virtual Server. If your Router was Provided to you by them give them a call and ask How are you supposed to setup a Virtual Server (Port Forwarding) as it is Not there??
If they say you cannot setup Port Forwarding find out if you could get your Own Router so you will be able to setup a Virtual server.
I've just been told by Talk Talk tech support after 30 minutes wait that they 'do not support virtual server searching' and 'no they cannot be of further help. If I choose to get my own router I cannot get a refund on the Smartex and it is my own responsibility and I will not get tech support from them'. So there. I now need my own router. Can I get some tips please? Thanks for your help Gerald
I figured that is what they would say but the Good news you are able to get your Own Router. but you will also need a Modem as the SmartAX is a Combo unit.
Well I do not have DSL so I don't know the connection Procedure, ie.. is there any special settings or numbers you need to input into the modem to get online and since TalkTalk is not going to Offer support I would look into getting a new ISP.
Or if you feel up to the Challenge get your Own Modem & router as for which modem I am unsure but as for the router if you are an Avid Gamer get a "Gaming Router" like the D-Link DGL 4300.
Setting up on a Cable ISP is rather simple Procedure but I am Not sure How it is on DSL??
